Subject: [HNW] question about actual viking embroideries

I'm looking for personal interest for photos of viking needlework, if any might be available, norse, swedish, whatever country is ok. 
I've been looking at the bayeux tapestry photos online, but most seem to be from drawings, and it's not really what i'm looking for. the project in mind is embellishment of sleeve edges and necklines on tunics and dresses. I've seen the pdf that was recently posted that had the small masks, large masks and vinework, and may end up using some of that, but would appreciate any links to line drawings or photos from other archaeological finds. I realize clothing and this sort of detail did not often survive.  I figure if anyone out there would know, it would be this group of folks. Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to give.
