antependium, yet again

The latest antependium panel without the fiddly twiddly bits. And I’ve just realised that the image has flipped the wrong way round. Not sure how to rectify that, maybe you’ll just have to squint.

Its either seven or one – seven in the order of works (go me!) or one in the narrative order. So, if this is the first panel in a cartoon strip of the life of the virgin mary, and a person just plain couldn’t be arsed to go and find the book that says what each panel is, logic would suggest that this is the birth of Mary.

I’m going to assume the adults are mum, dad, and midwife.

  1. Wonderful! What’s the stitch?

  2. the faces were done first in split stitch, then the wool bits are naturally dyed (well, so is the silk)and done in laid and couched work – same basic technique as the bayeux – details will next be added in either laidwork or more split stitch

  3. Looking good – and looking forward to seeing the “fiddly, twiddly bits”!
