So, at the moment I am currently putting together all the pieces for a Viking costume for an event in May.  (Costume isn't finished yet so thought I'd post some of the embroidery here, until I get around to doing a big post for the whole outfit Smiley )

This was pretty easy to put together and is made entirely for linen and all hand stitched.  The embroidery is done using silk embroidery thread.  I think I worked my way through two 6.5 metres skeins of gold thread on this one.  The embroidery is 24 inches long, and is based on the acanthus vine pattern.  I love how shiny the silk is!





And on -

Your stitching is amazing.  May I ask what type of gold thread you used? It's gorgeous.

Smiley Thanks everyone!

@CheeryBombs - I buy all my silk from the Silk Mill (www.thesilkmill.com) The gold shade is Vintage Gold 4085 Smiley  Their silk is so lovely.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.
