Baronial Guard Badge - Embroidery Done

I finally dragged out the Baronial Guard Badge and did the last couple of hours work on it. Now all I have to do is "make it up". I'm thinking of backing it with buckram or cardboard to help give it some body. It will be sewn on a sash and I think stiffness will help make it look nicer. Because of the materials, it can't be washed so the cardboard shouldn't be a problem.

Baronial Guard Badge made using red and green silk ground, with imitation Japanese gold thread. Basic couching work. This image is taken in indirect sunlight to show the design.


Ooh that is yummy! And beautifully regular stitching too.
