…and again I have new progress concerning my “12th century embroidery – Saint Michael and the Dragon” project for you. 😀
After the recent progress at Saint Michaels sleeve I took a short brake from the work at the sleeve and started working at Saint Michaels cloak instead.
…and here the picture of my new progress for you – enjoy! 😀
This long lines of Split Stitch seem to take forever but as you can see at the picture above, I already managed to make good progress on the cloak.
The thought that I am already in the “end spurt” process really helps me to go on and to get over the boring part of working up and down this “endless” lines of split stitch for the cloak. Wooohoooo! Endspurt! 😀
…and another close up picture of my new Split Stitch progress for you:
At the picture above you can see how I worked the filling for this long sections with the bend in the middle. I even tried to bring out the effect of the bend by intensifying the point of the embroidered lines.
He is not finished yet but he already looks very pretty to me. I am sure he will look even more handsome soon. Yay, you know, the difference a finished hand and a full cloak can make… 😉
