A friend was elevated to the Order of the Pelican yesterday. Now that it has been given, I can post the images of the embroidery. I was asked to embroider the medallion for her coat and was given a drawing to go off of. I am told it was adapted it from a painting inspired by "Conference of the Birds" by Mantiq-ut-Tayr.
I embroidered using silk threads on the ground fabric of teal silk dupioni. I was very pleased with how it turned out.
When I have a picture of the recipient wearing it, I will post that as well.
Edit: This is a picture of "Conference of the Birds" where the design inspiration came from for her Pelican cloak and medallion.

Well it took some time but I completed another 40+ inches of this trim for my friends gown.
Just wanted to post a picture of it completed.
Currently blackwork embroidering cuffs and collar for a friends chemise (here is a pic of that).
I am also knitting a pair of socks for a friend. Ill post a pic of that later when the first one is finished.
Im keeping busy. Always do!
