Just because I finished the paper, doesn't mean I'm through looking.  Have recently heard of Hathaway Wools from Tristan Brooks May have to check it out.

I have narrowed down the candidates to six threads.  This will mean 7 motifs (one of each of the candidates and one of the Medicis thread).
 
I have 3 of the 7 motifs done.  Also completed are the outline of the paper and at least the beginnings of the body of most of the sections.

Ok, I still like the "Who caused the Bayeux Tapestry" topic, but I'm really charged by a new topic and I'm going to do it instead.  "What do we do now?  The search for the replacement for DMC Medici for use in Bayeux Stitch embroidery."

Specific Topic Selected

I will review a number of books about the Tapestry and summarize the various theories regarding who the patron was for the piece -- i.e. "Who Caused the Bayeux"
 
Concluding section will be to discuss which theory I like and why.
