…and again new progress concerning my “12th century embroidery – Saint Michael and the Dragon” project.
I just finished the right side of the second layer of Saint Michaels garment and now I am already working at the left side.
As you can see at the next picture – the outlines are finished and I just need to fill the new embroidery sections.
It is really funny – the outlines seem to take forever but when it comes to the filling of the sections, it is completely different. I have the feeling that filling the sections takes about just half of the time I need for the outlines, though far more stitches are involved… *lol*
…and again a close up picture of my Split Stitch embroidery of the new section for you:
…and now just one or two more days and Saint Martins second layer will be finished – can’t wait to also finish the rest of him. 😀
PS.: If you would like to read more about the period 12th century inspiration for the design, embroidery technique,… then please read my first posting about this project:
