Book of Kells

For this project, I wanted to embroider the four symbols of the gospel-writers from the Book of Kells.  Started 2000; worked on intermittently until about 2006 or 2007.  I only completed two of the figures; I learned a lot more about fabric and embroidery as I worked on this and didn’t feel that the ground was worth the amount of work I was putting into it, so I ended it at two figures. The ground fabric is some sort of manmade crap; worked in DMC cotton using a LOT of satin stitch; also stem stitch, feather stitch, french knot, I have sketches for the other two figures and may upload eventually….
