We have one embroiderer who does "needle painting" with split stitch
(certainly a period technique!  She has taken illuminations and embroidered
them, and the result is spectacular.  This has not been part of a scroll
project, but this method could be used in that way.

She has 2 of these on the backs of capes - most impressive.
