Bayeux Tapestry Replica

This is the scene from the Bayeux Tapestry from which I did my "Man with a sack" for my C&G Embroidery module A. He is standing to the right behind the yellow (!!) horse... wearing a blue tunic . Ahhhh memories ... that was back in January 1999... I was trying to embroidery him in 40°c heat and had troubles with a slippery needle!!! That was when we had no air con ... just a ceiling fan which managed to blow all the threads around everywhere! haha!
My friend and I managed to go to Reading Museum to view the replica back last June and it is absolutely amazing ....I would, of course love to see the real one but as the Reading one was only an hour and 3/4 drive away from my rellies ...much more accessable for me. Here is the web addy if you would like to take a tour around the Tapestry ... you can see it scene by scene ...a great site! http://www.bayeuxtapestry.org.uk/Index.htm
