Fairytale coat again
Ok, so August may well end up being a historic embroidery free month here on the blog, becuase all the historical stuff I have to do is hush hush not internet. Normal service will resume in September, and in the mean time you’ll have to make do with a weekly fairytale coat update.
This week I worked the bottom right hand back of the coat.
Very small billy goats gruff on the bridge, gingerbread house, toadstools, red riding hood and a random fairy.
I feel like it still needs something – or maybe it doesn’t. I’m going to step back and work on another panel next, and come back to this and see how I feel about it at the assembly stage. I think theres a fine line between enough and too much. It might be easier to make these sorts of decision if you’re the sort of person who doesn’t plan things out on the back of envelopes, and then loose the envelope…
ugh, and no silver this week. I spent two days making a filigree knob for a chalice. I was pretty much at the upper limits of my skill and melted it at the last hurdle, no idea wehre to go with it now. also a bit…harumph
