Embroidered White Tree Jacket by littlelea Embroidered White Tree Jacket by littlelea
This is a jacket I embroidered quite a while back, that I just hadnt gotten around to taking a picture of.

The jacket was just a cheap leather jacket I picked up at Ross... it was my first try at embroidery so I didnt want to mess up anything expensive.
All embroidery was completely hand done... I dont own a machine.... let me tell you my thumb was raw for weeks! It probably took me somewhere around 12-17 hours to complete.

I did a bit of Sindarin translation for the peom that is repeated throughout... it is as follows:

Cr dynd ah erain dynd
neledh lui neledh.
Man tyngir o dr dhannen
or-aear hirol?
Geil odog a sern odog,
a galadh hilivren vn.

Free translation

'Tall ships and tall kings
three times three.
What brought they from the foundered land
over the flowing sea?
Seven stars and seven stones
and one white tree.'

Interlinear translation

Narn en-Angol
Rhyme of-Lore

Cr dynd ah erain dynd
Ships tall and kings tall

neledh lui neledh.
three times three.

Man tyngir o dr dhannen
What did-they-bring from-[the] land fallen

Or-aear hirol?
Over-[the]-sea flowing?

Geil odog a sern odog,
Stars seven and small-stones seven,

A galadh hilivren vn.
And tree shimmering-white one.
