And the side project

The scroll assignment I had to hurry up and do was a Golden Maple Leaf for Aelia Sophia, sweet sister of my heart if not of my blood.  The design is loosely based on the rune stones of the Urnes style.

Almost Finished

The coat (or garment as the archaeological reports call it) is about 90% finished.  I have about 3" of blanket stitching left on the front panel, about 20 buttons to make, and as many button holes then the outer layer of the challenge will be complete.  Here's a photo dump to show you my progress.  I'm very pleased with how this has turned out.
