I need some help! After Siubhan pointed out that the challenge description states that the Something To Keep You Warm project should be 50% or more in a new stitch, I began thinking about using another cloak for my challenge project. I had agreed some time ago to embroidery a friend's arms on a cloak. She has a very broad persona, 1400-1499 modern day France. I've had no luck finding stitches that would have been used. If anyone can help tell me what stitches fit into this time and place, I'd be eternally grateful!
I'm now off to see if my textiles books can be of any help!
