midway point
I've just about reached the midway point of Stage One of Operation Fix Wolfie's Cloak, aka the Wolfie Cloak Reclaimation Project. I've stitched the outlines of 19 motifs, and one more will bring me to not quite exactly the middle of the strip that I'm going to sew onto the cloak.

I'm pleased. I'm not looking forward to filling in all those flowers (there will be 80 of them before I'm done), but I'm pleased. At least I've struck on a way to fill the vine so it'll pop a bit. I'm going to get a lighter colored green and use it to couch down the darker green between the two lines I've already stitched. Hopefully it'll look good. The rest...

The Mammen embroideries are filled in with stem stitch. I could do that. I think it'll look nice. But will I ever want to sew a stitch again after I'm done? Lord knows... I could see what two strands looks like, I suppose; see if it fills faster and looks all right. But let's just say that it might not happen for a while.

Having read the Saga O' The Cloak, I'm really interested in seeing this thing. Coronation, you said?

No, I don't think I did, but I think I can get the outlines done by then, and that's good enough to be able to baste it on to show people.

I have since reread, and i believe you mentioned getting this done in time to make spiffy 12th night outfits. That's what I was thinking of. At any rate, I'd love to see this. Sounds like a heck of a project.
