Sutton hoo

So I listened to the popular consensus and went with the sutton hoo panel, which turned out to be right because there was a lady in the living history camp doing a version of spagetti dog.

Although on reflection working with silk filament on watered silk taffeta might not have been the sanest choice for a public event, even though I was working in the ballroom rather than outside in the breeze (I was there storytelling, but I needed something to do with my downtime) and there might be a few *cough* tangles at the back *cough*

I did a bit of the gold so people could see the eventual aim, but made sure to do bits that wouldn’t interfere with progress. everyone agreed with me that this panel depicts a man getting his ears licked by puppies.

That watered silk taffeta is REALLY hard to photograph though, I think I’m going to have to set the proffesional on it when it’s done
