Finished - Heraldic Surcoat

Finished surcoat!

The heraldic surcoat is finished, washed, ironed, and delivered!  Hooray!  The wyvern is placed on the hip, so I had to pin in a fold for it to show in the picture.  I didn't attend Crown Tournament this weekend, so I am hoping that friends got pictures of the surcoat in action.

Appliqué and embroidery is finished!

The wyvern was quite tedious, but a very gratifying project.  I've done a lot of machine applique and there is definitely a difference between the finished product of hand work and the machine work. The combination of applique and embroidery have a nice drape to them.  I'm always amazed at how lovely linen looks after it's all pressed out and hung up.  Yowza!
