Petrus Christus hat progress
Sorry about the lack of updates, my shoulder has been very sore for some reason, and there’s something about the angle of the computer at Gareth’s that really aggravates it, (home now – laptop is fine) and then there was the IMC, which was busy busy fun.
I’ve finished the embroidery – the gold took ages! (It doesn’t help that there are about 60 complete squares plus the partial ones)
At first I thought I would make the surrounds for the garnets from couched gold thread, but in the end I went with little circles of gilded leather – it’s and equally valid period solution, and I liked the extra dimension it gave over couched thread.
Tablet weave is in progress, and I’ve ordered fabric for the viel, so hopefully finished soon!
