sad to say, my rather newly (and proudly!) aquired embroidery skills weren't much of anything compared to the work of the women in gudvangen. (seems we were wrong, visty ; they did have time for more than just pillaging - most of the embroidery i saw was reconstructions of originals.. damn!).
i made this woolen mantle for sale before gudvangen.
can you see the runes missing inside of the dragon's body? can you?
but hey - one has to start somewhere! besides, i did discover their tracing paper trick. AND someone did buy my chainstich, rune missing dragon mantle :)
