>Are you saying she embroiders the illuminations on the back of capes?
Yes, she has done this twice.
>Are they appliqued?
No. They are drawn out and the outlines filled in with split stitch. They
take her about 200 hours, she says.
As a person who does counted work, I am in awe of her work. Freehand
stitches like this drive me nuts.
>Are there photos of these as I'd love to see them?
I am afraid that I do not have great photos, nor a way to scan the
inadaquate ones I took.
