Badges of Ansteorra - Orders, Awards, & Offices
This page is a work in progress and is inspired by the SCA (Society of Creative Anachronism.) If you're not a part of the SCA this page may not be of any interest to you - but you're still welcome to peruse my work.
One day I happened upon some charts for the Laurel and Pelican badges at http://www.dragonbear.com/peerage.html. I thought it would be nice if charts for other orders, awards and offices were available...and so this page was born.
These charts are based on images that were found on the Ansteorra website. They use whole stitches only so they can be used for more than cross stitch. Imagine how great they would look done up in cross stitch, weaving, mosaic tiles, beads, latch hook, petit point, or even rhinestones - ok, maybe I'm getting carried away, but you get the point. Just click on each picture for the chart.
