Woooohoooo! Endspurt! …this final embroidery work is getting more and more finished. I am very happy to tell that I just finished the first section of the embroidery for the 14th century French pouch. 😀
…and again I have new photos of the recent progress for you. Enjoy! 😀
I am glad to say that my customer made some decisions concerning the colors,…:
- A (light) blue for the hood “filling”
- Figures outlined according to the color of the section
- An extra small – ca. 1cm – section at the top for the lacing in the same color as for the hood
- The color for the silk for the backside of the pouch
- The material for the inside
That’s a good start though there are still some decisions to be made – but they can wait for now. My customer seems to enjoy it very much that he can influence the details for his pouch. I am very happy to support and to comply with his wishes. Well, I have to admit that I would have never chosen this color combination but I find it very appealing… This is a very nice experiment for me and an interesting experience…
Btw. here a nice detail shot for you of the finished blue hood.
According to the wishes of my customer I used the lightest blue wool-silk thread I had in my collection for the hood section and finished the outlines according to the color of the section:
Well, I love this embroidery, but I love medieval embroidery anyway.
…it is always great when a plan comes together, isn’t it?! 😀
