Illuminated Manuscript II by MN-Vixen Illuminated Manuscript II by MN-Vixen
Many years ago (think 1989) Counted Cross Stitch and Country Crafts magazine published a pattern for a wallhanging based on a page from an "illuminated manuscript." They eventually published a companion piece (this item). I started this project immediately after finishing the first one and finished it in 2000 (total: 4 years - less time than the first one!).

Here's a link to the first piece (Illuminated Manuscript I): [link]

Fabric - oatmeal colored Lugnasa linen, 25 count, stitched over 2 threads
Floss - DMC, Kreinik gold blending filament

I apologize for the quality of the photo - this piece has not yet been framed

I still have the magazine and pattern around somewhere if anyone would like additional information on the piece.

Actually, I've done bigger ones, too. I love the big projects - they are so wonderfully detailed.

Thank you! I'm just glad it didn't take 5 years (like the first one did).

Thanks! I can't wait to get them both matted, framed, and hung up on the walls.
