embroidery

I have been away for a long time. I had cataract, and had to have it operated. So I will make an up date of what I have been up to Today I will show you some of my embroidery.

First pictures of my goldwork not quite finish, but close. I have mostly embroidered on this at historic markeds here in Denmark.





I was shown how to make Hedebo guldnakke embroidery and here is my practice piece.




I made a copy of a medieval Mitra for an exerbition in Ribe Cathedral. The first picture shows a bit of the picture I had to work from an the same bit as embroidery. Silk and gold on silk.






I found an old bench and made this new cover for it. the Lion and Dragon are my own design. embroided in wool on wool.




a bit of blackwork that is going to become a chess board and my tape measure.

I really liked this embroidery. And I want to ask - where did you learn to embroider?

I started embroidering cross stitch as a child. For many years only embroidered occasionally. But after I made my Eleanor de Toledo dress i continunued doing more embroidery. I took a gold work course in Copenhagen, as I had no clue to the different materials in gold work and I would have to order them online. Most other technics I picked up from books and the Internet.

Thanks for the reply. You are wonderful embroidery. I also embroider, but since you do not know how I embroider. And there is no one to teach me. But some of the techniques of embroidery, I find on the Internet.
