Exaltation of the Holy Cross, Opus Anglicanum Style.

This was a unique once in a lifetime project whereby I was asked to restore orphreys of Opus Anglicanum embroidery work, and re-mount them onto a newly made chasuble. The project is nearing completion, so I am showing a preview of the work on this fitting feast day!

  1. I can only imagine how much work this was! Last summer I was asked to repair some Patronal Banners that were about 150 years old. As I said to my daughter, it was like "sewing smoke". Fragile doesn't begin to describe such things, so well done!
