project day three

the bit that looks black is really dark purple, but the camera is mucking around with it. gareth wanted purple.

It’s really quite useful to look at things blown up like this whilst they’re in progress – it lets me see the tiny chinks I’ve missed so I can go back over them.

I really like doing drapery, its perfect for watching a film with a glass of wine – nice and brainless.

  1. I’m loving this. Thank you for posting your progress each day. I plan on watching it throughout. I’ve not seen this type of embroidery before.

  2. You can embroider when you’ve had a glass of wine? Any time I try I end up unpicking it!

    • I’m a bad example, I’m so used to doing living history and talking to the public whilst doing things that nothing ever gets quite my full attention. besides which, never enjoy being properly drunk, so i never drink a lot
