A paper on medieval Scandinavian embroidery

I found this nice paper on medieval Scandinavian embroidery via google:

http://www.forest.gen.nz/Medieval/articles/embroidery/Scandinavian.pdf

Things that were interesting to me:

- fig 1: overview of lacing stitches. The one on the second row to the right looks really nice, and I think the one in the left corner below was also frequently used in 14th/15th century whitework

-fig 3: pictures of the original St. Brigitta coif

-fig 4: a pillow done in needle weaving
