>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.
