The Land of Not-Quite-Finished-Projects Part 7: Celtic



So once upon a time in my early-ish 20's, I was involved in the SCA and enthralled with all things Celtic and vaguely medieval.   Got into costuming to some degree, went to a couple Pennsics, and generally had a good time.  


I had a bunch of totes and bags and such that I would do small pieces of embroidery like these and use them to decorate.  Most of those bags are long gone at this point - I've gone through stages where I had a good clearing out and they ended up on the hit list.


I think I got these all out of the same book, one of those Dover pattern books that just had black and white Celtic patterns.  Some I left monocromatic (obviously) and others I played around with the colors, like this one:



So I think that's about it for this series :-)   But never fear, there are tons of ongoing projects and old goodies to share in the future.

Bonjour,
I wanted to come by and thank you for following. You have a great blog, I do love cross stich, but unfortunately have never really tried it seriously. After seeing all your beautiful work I need to change that.
I'll be following along and will be back soon.
Good weekend to you,
Mimi
