I’ve been workiP1040792ng on the big Opus Teutonicum banner off and on. Because I usually only work on it at SCA events or sometimes at my local Arts and Sciences meetings its moving along slowly, but it is moving along. Here is what I’ve got done so far.  I am outlining the central figure with reverse chain stitch.  His eye is pulled thread work, and his face is being filled in with a variation of brick stitch.  The ground fabric is tabby woven linen in a dress weight ( I think I got it from Jo-Anns, years ago).  Here is a wide shot so that you can get a better sense of scale.
