(The author) has been inspired by a wide range of Celtic artefacts including stone-carving, illuminated manuscripts, and metalwork to bring a fresh but thoughtful approach to this enduring art form. There are more than 25 beautiful projects to choose from ranging from pot lids and cards to pictures and a firescreen. Celtic key patterns provide the inspiration for a striking black and terracotta desk set, which includes a paperweight, a notebook cover and two simple bookmarks. A needlework sewing accessory set is based on a carved stone cross, while a pair of bright and colourful cushions feature the interlaced dogs and birds that adorn the pages of the Lindisfarne Gospels. In addition, a fully charted motif library of over 50 designs will provide you with a wonderful resource of patterns that is sure to spark ideas of your own." Slight waviness to edges of textblock.
