Please visit Rakonczays website and the page about his project – “Mars and Silvia” – for further information and great progress pics
This project will take ca. 2 more years till it will be finished – if you would like to see some of his finished tapestry projects please visit: Tapestry Projects …and btw. he also embroiders -> Embroidery Projects …I think it would be better if you check out his “Arts and Science” section yourself
Featured projects till now:
- Honors Bayeux style tapestry
Today I proudly present a really awesome and outstanding project of a friend of mine and a great artisan to you:
~ Honor of Restormels lovely Bayeux style tapestry ~
Honor was my very first queen at my very first SCA event in summer 2004.
I will never forget my very first court – when the people who attend this SCA event for the very first time were asked to step forward to receive a small gift, there were too many people and not enough gifts, therefore she took off some of her own jewellery and gave it to the people waiting in front of her without hesitation – so much generosity and kindness – she is and, I am sure, will always be my favourite queen and my ideal concerning generosity and kindness. …and I was also very glad that I was able to take this nice picture of her.
I was very happy to got to know her better at several events – btw. I was really amazed when I saw her standing in the kitchen and helping the kitchen crew at University 2004 – how often can you see a queen helping out in the kitchen? …and I have a photo which can prove it *lol*
As far as I remember Honor told me at the Hansa Challenge event (February 2006) that she is going to learn the Bayeux Stitch (photo on the right side was taken at the event) and I am really happy about the lovely result which I may present to you today.
…btw. Honor is a member of the Dragon’s Needle Embroidery Guild and one of the several reasons why I love the SCA – Society for Creative Anachronism
…and now some thoughts of Honor about the project:
The reason for the project was to make a tapestry in the style of the Bayeux for our home and we decided to chronicle our reign. The finished product is about 22 feet long and hangs in our den. It is DMC cotton on Linen – mostly because I am allergic to wool. I know there are a lot of colors and things which are out of place in a Bayeux style… like the pink bunny, but there are reasons for each thing there and much is to honour special people. I also wanted something more colorful for my home than the original Bayeux tapestry has to offer.
I hope you enjoy the following photos of her project as much as I do
Fru Renika posted about the progress of the “Coat of Arms” Wallhanging:
Even in this very basic stage concerning the sewing – she is planning the outlay of the final wallhanging – it looks really awesome and gives a clue of the finished wallhanging – I am very looking forward to seeing the next progress
Once again I heartily thank every artisan who contributed to this great project!
