New Project

So, I have been working on a new project. An Embroidered hat. It is a gift for my head of house, hopefully he likes it. It is based on a pattern of a torque from Champagne France from the 4Th-3rd century BC. The first image is the basic outline with the outline of the pattern piece done in running stitch. The second is about 10 hours into the embroidery. It is done in DMC embroidery wool on a light coating wool in split-stitch. The finished hat will have two motifs in white, two in grey, and two in black. I am going through thread faster than i thought i would. The embroidery wool is thin and it stretches. I hope to start on the grey by Tuesday. Will posy more pictures then.
