Embroidered Shawl

A new commissioned piece of 1880's kit made in time for the last game! 


It's black satin dupion (slub side out), trimmed with a  gold lace and with goldwork embroidery.




 The design was drawn by Vivian and I used back stitch to fill it in.  I would like to state for the record that I despise gold thread.  It snaps and it's horrible and scratchy and fiddly.  I used an entire skein on this shawl and I'm quite frankly glad to see the back of it!

I will say though, that I think it looks lovely!
