The 1st book from 1583 was my experimentation of making my own purl. It was hard to find a craft wire that would give me the right size. But I’m quite happy with the results.
The second book dated 1620, was my choice to teach Gold work embroidery at St Clairs event last year. Though it was cancelled and rescheduling for next year, I still hope to teach it. I didn’t find many details on the piece, but it is typical of embroidered book covers.
Both are works in progress.
