  1. long armed cross?

    are the swirly bits at the top of the tassels based on a period example? they’re pretty

    • Thanks, yes this is long armed cross stitch. The Tassel heads are based on a period example that is at the MET. I will post a little bit about them early next week. I’ve been working on this piece for a big SCA arts festival/ competition here and still need to finish writing up all my research documentation. And then organize and pack for the event on Saturday. I don’t want to wait until the last minute or anything.
