Celtic Cross Stitch Designs by Carol Phillipson
A celebration of the rich colours and textures of the ancient Celts, translated into a range of projects and ideas for embroidery. The author has used over 100 traditional Celtic themes, including knots and spirals, plaits and braids, animal and plant forms, artefacts and lettering, to make up a series of household items. Her instructions and charts simplify the translation of Celtic designs into counted cross stitch patterns. Projects include: coasters and paperweights; cards; sewing accessories; bell pulls; a desk set; pictures; towels with a border trim; cushions; an heirloom rug; a footstool; tableware; and a classic illuminated Celtic alphabet.
