Today I started to work on the fleur de lys. I choosen to make it because it’s one of the items in Gotviks coat of arms. Gotvik is the shire were I lived when I joined SCA and also the shire were I’m a member now even if I don’t live in that area. In one way the fleur de lys stands for some of my lovely friends who lives in the shire or in any way associeted with Gotvik. In that way every time I wear the dress they are with me in a symbolic way. Maybe it´s lame to you but I like that my motives in the embroidery have a meaning to me.
