Smart phone post...

First update I'm trying from my new smart phone. I finally took a picture of the Overly Ambitious Embroidery Project of Doom. I have, in fact, finished one of the colors in it. The slate blue in the knotwork on the back of the neck is finished and there is just a little in the center front to bring the color around.

The elements are a combination of a couple different manuscripts, and I specifically blended a few images of the Eagle of Saint John to create a "hawk" because of Himself's arms. Much of the design us from various pages from the Book of Kells. I keep thinking that at some point I'll embroider some cuffs to go with it, but as the collar has taken two years and frequent lost motivation, we'll have to see.
