Zoiks! Just glancing through it, wow! Gotta love someone who knows her weaving! No way I'm going to be able to read that thoroughly without cerebral implosion, but cool anyway.

So, WHY doesn't this brilliant person live near me??

Oh, your subject is wrong--it's not "embroidered" at all...

Good point! "embroidery" was just a term that brought it up but I shouldn't have put it in the title. Yeah, my brain oozes out my ears when I read it too! Heck, if a very knowledgeable weaver can only make approximations of the decoration.. Thankfully the decorative work on the linen armour was probably a lot less complex, but I will be using nearly all of the stitching types for my armour as well as embellishments with gold thread.
