I've been to see The Great Tapestry of Scotland again as it's on display at Cockenzie House and open for viewing until the 8th. of December. My pictures this time are mostly of details from the panels* rather than the broader subjects themselves, and I plan to post them in three or four batches so that there is not too much to take in all at once. I hope they will show something of the range of stitches used in the piece and the very creative ways in which the designer Andrew Crummy and the many embroiderers who worked on the panels have interpreted Scotland's history from its landscape and buildings to its people, ideas and institutions. You'll find some pictures with a literary theme on Cornflower Books, and there will be more to look at here very soon.
*Every panel is shown in colour - with notes - in the new hardback book on the Tapestry.
