The embroidered jacket project at the Plimoth Plantation is done, they are having the big reveal today. Pics have been posted on the blog for those of us that couldn't be there:

The surviving jackets from this period all look colorful, but in a warm, faded-glow sort of way. Now we see what they would have looked brand new. They must have sparkled like fireworks in the candlelight!

I am so happy I was able to participate in this project. Yup, that's where this icon comes from. I stitched the gold petals. This flower is in the middle of the back, right under the bird. A little hard to miss :).

It was an awesome group of folks who speared headed it, and bulldogged it to see it got done. And it is!

Oh yeah, and they did an article in the Boston Globe on the project today :).
