A new complex double running embroidery

ashmoleaneightpointedstar This embroidered textile was made in Egypt between the 10th and 15th century C.E. It is even weave linen, 13 cm by 7.5 cm and embroidered in blue and brown silk in double running stitch. The design has a central eight pointed star, surrounded in squares with crosses and blue triangles. The main design is edged with continuous vines.

The textile is currently in the Ashmolean Museum.

It is my opinion that the embroidery is closer to the 15th century than the 10th. I have charted up the design and would love to know how it goes!
