This device is being made as part of the WCOB Banner Project. I can't work on my device cause it isn't registered yet. So I am working on this Lochac device and also on a Masters Device as well.
The device came as part of a kit. The device was already drawn on the silk and mounted on the backing fabric. I also received printed instructions. I just have to supply the thread (Maderia silk).

This is much bigger than real life. This shield is only about 4cm in size. I am working it with a single strand of Maderia silk using an very fine needle. I have to use a magnifying light to work this. The above picture shows about 2 hrs work.

At about 9 hours. This is working up slowly but surely. My eyes aren't hurting as much now.

The sewing seems to be going faster this time. Only took an hour to do the blue corner. So I should only need three more hours to finish it off. This is the progress at 14 hours.

The device is finished. A couple more hours last night and I was able to finish the device. Image is below. Took a total of 18 hours to complete.
The finished peice is approx 2 inches wide.
