Alright! I got really bored with the belt, so instead of working with that I begun with the rose instead. It's quite relaxing actually, but I kinda feel like an old lady when I sit here with this embroidery... haha, but, whatever.
Speaking of embroidery. I'm not very skilled in this fine art, but I have nothing to fear. Google is my very best friend in this very difficult, and dangerous task ( needles can be dangerous when do things wrong! ). And also I have a hard time deciding if I should go for the more medieval look or just swing it as I want it to be :P
However, I'm almost finished with the "outline" of the rose. I'm redoing some of the parts right now, but I'm soon done. I have no idea if this is how you usually do it.. but I do it this way :P
One thing more, I know that her rose is rather black and red, but I thought that would look really ugly In-Real-Life so I chose this goldish look instead. It goes well with the rest of the coats colour palette. And she's an very awsome general that deserves more gold och shimmery things in her life. :D The generals of Alexandria deserves the very best embroidery that is!
