Coat of Arms project - Shire of Aros badge finished
I sent out a message on our mailing list saying I had finished the badge I promised to do, namely for the Shire of Aros, and there I promised pictures. Here is the promised picture, showing how I outlined the entire badge in chain stitch, the owl separately in chain stitch in black, then on the outside again with chain stitch, and the surfaces finally filled in using split stitch.
The laurel wreath is not that pretty, or even, but I used stem stitches and satin stitches to make it up. From the right distance it looks like a wreath at least, which is what counts.
There are three more pictures in my Giftbasket gallery on Picasa for anyone interested.
