I really wish I had remembered this resource when I suggested the Assisi challenge as Assisi Embroideries, from DMC library is a great book on which can be found on the On-Line Digital Archive of Documents on Weaving and Related Topics. I hope what I have lost in timeliness I make up for in quality.
I hope the eye candy below tempts you to explore further what is between these digital pages.
The book contains easy to follow information on how to work this style of hand embroidery, as well as, some traditional Italian Assisi designs.
Assisi Embroideries, from DMC library is delivered in two PDF files the first is 10.5 MB PDF and the second is 12.0 MB PDF.
It is hosted free on the On-Line Digital Archive of Documents on Weaving and Related Topics . You will find it about a third down this page described as:
Dillmont, Thérèse de. Assisi Embroideries, DMC Library, 39 pages….
As you can see they are clearly illustrated and there are also some blackwork designs included.
