Three! Three Projects Done! AH! AH! AH!

Image
I love to art, but today shall be about recuperation. Achy wrists, sore fingers joints and tender finger pads are the reason. I came about these pains doing what I love and I will do it all again too.Yesterday, by end of day I had completed three projects off my list: two embroidered, one knit.

A few weeks ago I was asked to embellish two white fighting tunics for the Prince and Princess of the Mists, Antonii and Helga (http://mists.westkingdom.org/). The tunic was provided for me. I appliqued the Principality of the Mists arms on the center of the chest and then did seam embellishments.




I am very pleased with how they came out. Id like to have put the roses on the Princess's arms but time constraints didn't allow it. It is my hope they will be added, perhaps via fabric paint, later. I handed them off at 7:45 to a friend who was delivering them for me yesterday.  *WHEW*

Fighting Surcoat I made...LOOONG Time ago!

Image
It was a long time ago, but I was chatting with my SCA brother and I asked if he had a picture of the surcoat I made him. He found this pic and sent it to me. It was the first real applique I had done that was put to "good tough use". The surcoat had four different coat of arms on it. On one should was his household's badge. On his other shoulder was his wife's arms. On the front was his arms and the back was the Northern Army badge. In this picture you cant see back and left shoulder.  I was very proud of this.  Just wanted to share some of my earlier works.

Latest Finished Project: "LaBroder-dress"

Viking ensemble for a friend. Took me some time what with moving and other life things going on but its finally done. Black linen gown with embroidery and seam treatments and blue linen apron dress with seam treatments. The same treatments on the cuffs of the black gown are on the hem of it as well, which I didn't get a picture of.  Very happy with how it came out and the recipient sent me a wonderful shocked face picture that made me smile.  Here are the images of it.
