Guild Member Projects: Honor of Restormels lovely Bayeux style tapestry

HS070

I proudly present a really awesome and outstanding project of a member of the Dragon's Needle Embroidery Guild to you:

~ Honor of Restormels lovely Bayeux style tapestry ~


Honors thoughts about the project:
The reason for the project was to make a tapestry in the style of the Bayeux for our home and we decided to chronicle our reign. The finished product is about 22 feet long and hangs in our den. :) It is DMC cotton on Linen – mostly because I am allergic to wool. I know there are a lot of colors and things which are out of place in a Bayeux style… like the pink bunny, but there are reasons for each thing there and much is to honour special people. I also wanted something more colorful for my home than the original Bayeux tapestry has to offer. :)

I hope you enjoy the following photos of her project as much as I do :)
