Lindisfarne Stones: the finished piece

I only just got Lindisfarne Stones finished in time, and it’s now been handed over for the exhibition in Durham Cathedral, but I took a few photos of it before it went.

Next to the gold, the pale carved stone looks almost luminous:

And the gold stitching sparkles in the light:

I’m very much looking forward to seeing it in the Cathedral – I’ll let you know how it goes!

  1. This is beautiful, Ruth! I wish that I’d been able to see it. I was just in Durham last week and saw your banner hanging proudly there. The Cathedral is such a lovely place. And full of wonderful embroidery. I wish I’d been allowed to take pictures.
