Medieval Cog Ship Crewel
New lovable Kelmscott scissors ! Tied with colourful cheerfulness from Yarn Yarn .
A scrap of linen from my hoard .
A Chenille needle with a golden eye .
Appleton's beautiful Crewel Wool.... the colours chosen as I progress .
I'm still back in medieval times . This time sailing on a medieval Cog ship .
The design is from the Seal of Stralsund and the date is 1329 .
I want to bring it to life with lots of medieval colour .
I embroidered his little face first , to bring him to life .
He can keep me company and tell me his tales of the sea whilst I stitch .
