St Cuthbert Project update Hands! 🖐 I’m pleased with these too, especially the nails, which I wasn’t sure would work. I recorded stitching the fillings but need to edit the snippets before I post them. Watch this space. The outlines are worked in stem stitch. The silk thread is doubled and the slight S-twist is created through the stitching process. I’ve included a detail of the original for comparison. #workinprogress #embroidery #handembroidered #technique #historical #silkthread #silk #earlymedieval #medieval #earlymedievalarchaeology #earlymedievalhistory #earlymedievaltextiles #textilearchaeology #textiletechinques #materiality #archaeologicaltextileart #archaeologicaltextiles #historicalembroidery #historicalembroiderytechniques #embroiderartisart #damngoodstitch #textileoftheday #splitstitch #stemstitch #handcrafted #craft #historicaltextiletechnique #historicaltextiles #colour #color
