Trevelyon’s Cap Final Photos

The sun did shine for a short time this weekend. It was late afternoon, so it slanted in the window as it does during the early part of the winter at about 3 pm. These photos have shadows which enhance the bright color and gold shimmer of the cap.

I took quite a few more under a strong light against a flat white background; these look more like museum shots. Lastly, there is a video – made with my iPad so it isn’t the very highest quality. It does, however, show you the piece in the round.

Before you zip down the page, I want to say thank you to all of you who sent encouraging words, upbeat comments, sympathetic insights and general support during the past year. You’re a great community and, as I’ve said before, I wish we could all get together and chat as we stitch.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

    Congratulations on a beautiful finish to this project. It has been a fantastic journey of discovery along with you – is it really a year?

    What will happen to T’s hat now? Will you keep him, or sell him or give him to a museum or ?

    Whatever happens, it is a great piece of work. Keep it up.

  19. Georgia says:

    When I look at antique pieces of embroidery, I always wonder if human hands really could do that. Now I know – some can. Truly exquisite.

    p.s how did you make it turn so nicely in the video?
