12th century embroidery – Saint Michael and the Dragon – sneak peek.1 & news concerning my move to the states…


Do you remember my last posting – 12th century embroidery – Saint Michael and the Dragon – which I posted some days ago?

I am very glad to say that I have some new progress for you. I tremendously enjoy working at this embroidery in my rather rare “spare time” at the moment. Like always it is a great pleasure to see my embroidery grow. 😀

A personal side note for all of you who are waiting for news concerning my move to the states: I am still very busy washing and packing my fabric stash, sorting out stuff and packing more and more boxes for my move to the states. During the last weeks I washed countless meters of fabric and packed about 500 books into 16 banana boxes. My books are mostly about medieval times & history, medieval art, costuming, crafting and embroidery… I have to admit that I was very surprised about how many books I actually have and I will leave just a very small number of books behind me in Europe – but this are just some modern books – they don’t really count… *lol* 😉

Racaire_Berlin_2014Every one of my book boxes has about
30-35 kg… *gosch* …and while I was packing my books and writing my book list it happened (rather often) that I took a look inside.
Oh my, what shall I say, I found so many great stuff I need to post about in the future… Therefore please keep your fingers crossed that my collection of rather rare books makes over the ocean it without problem… *lol*

And yes, during my breaks concerning packing or how I call it – my rather rare “spare time” at the moment – I am working at some embroidery or at new postings for you… Well, I guess this is what I consider a treat – embroidery and good chocolate… 😉

…and here finally the promised sneak peek picture of the new progress of my “12th century embroidery – Saint Michael and the Dragon” for you – enjoy! 😀


Best regards Racaire
