The image above is my workcopy which I made from the book of J. Romilly Allen. It is a spiral ornament from the Book of Durrow.
I´m really grateful I found this old historybook on celtic art in the library. On one hand I feel like a copycat and maybe it would be better to make my own designs. Than again if I don´t make my own version of it just a very few people would see these images.
It is a real challenge for me to make these small embroideries because the originals show so much craftmanship. So I forgive myself and practice my embroidery stitches with love.
And I hope that the pictures bring you just as much joy as the making process brought me.
Have a day filled with love.
