Queen's Favors

I have always enjoyed embroidery and sewing. I love Queen's Favors because they are small projects that are possible to complete in a reasonable amount of time.

So far, I have completed a dozen favors for each Queen since I have officially joined the SCA. We'll see for how long I can keep it up.

Queen Caoilfhionn II. Delivered in two sets of 6. Of course, I only have pictures of one set. Simple outlines in stem stitch, chain stitch, and couching. Standard DMC floss on 100% Cotton.

Queen Avelina III. Stem stitch. Standard DMC Floss on 100% Cotton.

Queen Anna III. Stem stitch, back stitch, chain stitch, and feather stitch. Standard DMC Floss on 100% Cotton.

Queen Honig. I was only up to embroidering three. Stem stitch, back stitch, couching, chain stitch, satin stitch. DMC Floss on poly/cotton, couching with silk thread. The other 9 were painted craft paint.

Queen Matilde. I hate fill stitches. Applique is the best. Wool felt on 100% cotton. DMC floss used to stitch down.

Queen Caoilfhionn III. Stem stitch, chain stitch, and back stitch. DMC Floss on 100% Cotton. The gold is something plastic you can get at JoAnn's.

Queen Vienna. I still hate fill stitches. Outlining is all I had. The one filled was cloister stitch. All other are stem stitch, chain stitch, and long and short stitch. DMC Floss on poly/cotton. Poly/cotton is always a mistake, but it was the closest color match.

Queen Fortune. I keep forgetting I hate fill stitches. The one filled was stem stitch. I then gave up and went with applique. DMC floss on 100% Cotton. Applique was also 100% cotton. Regular seed beads for some of the points.

I have applique cut out for Margarita. Hope to have them done before Birka.
