Have you ever wanted to have your own map of the expedition taken by the company of Thorin Oakenshield? I have created this excellent embroidery outline of Thror's map, given to Bilbo. It is a large print, excellent framed and hung in a study and measures approximately 42" x 32" on a yard of fabric. You will need to purchase thread separately of the following three colours of embroidery floss:
DMC Black #0310
DMC Pale Bay Blue #3756
DMC Garnet #0816
I suggest ordering on one yard of Linen-Cotton Canvas to get the entire outline. This fabric stretches nicely and its uneven weave and natural colouring gives it a wonderfully ancient feel. Be sure to budget time - it may very well take you years to reach the Lonely Mountains!
An adventure not to be taken by the weak hearted!!
(I will follow up with the approximate quantity of thread used, and photos of my progress).
