Hi! I'm new to posting, though I've browsed for, uhm, a while. I do some needlework - mostly cross-stitch, but generally only when I'm watching television. I've really enjoyed the forum, and wanted to post something of my own. I went to Ireland for the first time last year (I live in the US). Although I didn't have much time in Dublin, I had to see the Book of Kells. It was pretty incredible. Afterwards, I picked this cross-stitch kit in the Trinity College library gift shop. It's an illuminated letter (a G) based on the illuminated letters in the Book of Kells.
I worked on it off and on over the course of a couple months & am very happy with the results. The pattern was designed by Celtic Cross Stitch in County Mayo, Ireland, on the web at http://www.celticxstitch.ie.
Hope you enjoyed!
