Though the embroidered knight belts might look rather simple, as you can see them at the picture on the left, they still demanded a lot of thought, time and stitches. But well, you know, I like challenges and this combined Order of the Chivalry and Pelican patches were definitely a very interesting personal challenge for me as I normally rarely do appliqué embroidery.

Now, that I finally caught up with most of my housework and am able to enjoy a rather clean home again, I am back at my computer again and ready to also catch up with the most recent progress of the 14th century XL hood project for my friends Pelican elevation.
Therefore I checked my last posting about the embroidery for the hood as well as the pictures on my tablet and found some photos concerning the surface couching embroidery for the appliqué border embellishment I haven’t posted yet.
During the last days I was searching for a new medieval pelican inspiration for my current embroidery project. Well, what shall I say – finding a new inspiration is often difficult enough but if you are looking for something special, it can appear to be even more challenging.
Fully aware of this fact, I gathered my favorite books about embroidery around me, sat down and went through my books in order to find a new medieval pelican inspiration for my current 14th century hood project for my friends pelican elevation.
And as I put the past days to very good use, I am very glad to say that all the hard work finally paid off! Yes, I achieved even more good progress and was even able to finish the appliqué work on the left side too.
Unfortunately a nasty head cold is slowing me down at the moment. But regardless how bad the head cold is making me feel, it couldn’t prevent me from accomplishing some good new progress concerning the appliqué work for the 14th century XL hood for my friends Pelican elevation. 😀
It took again several hours and a countless amount of small stitches but I just managed to apply the last patch to the right side of the hood. Now I can finally focus on the appliqué work for the second side – the left side.
It seems like time flies at the moment. The due date for the white 14th century XL hood project for a friend of mine moves closer and closer. But there is no cause for worry yet. I did put the last days to very good use and was therefore able to achieve a lot of progress.
