Sorry to not have been around much of late. We've had some life altering losses in our family recently.

I made this cuff in September. Loosely inspired by Book of the Kells. I love celtic knots! I'm working on a celtic knot deer, but that will have to wait until I finish the preparations for the workshop I'm teaching in November.

Very interesting! I like those monkey knot things, as well. I wish you good fortune, and sorry to hear of your family losses, too. Hope all goes better from here. Nothing we can do but keep plugging on. But get a hug and kiss from me. Life deals us a dirty way, sometimes. Reach out to friends. I am here for you!

Oh, and I love what you have done for the cuff. It looks really cool. I love the colors, and the "pheonix" design. It looks really unique. And glad that you are teaching. That keeps us crazy souls in action!!!

Awesome!  The first thing I thought of when I saw it was the book of Kells.  The colours are prettier in my opinion though!
