further development on the Lindisfarne Gospels

showing my technique ideas

open shading with silk thread, and running stitch
I have now started embroidering my printed calico of a design from the Lindisfarne Gospels.  My aim is to make it look as authentic as possible, using traditional stitch techniques and adding my own personal ideas.
