Thank you for your permission and for your comments.

The purpose of my posting was to illustrate Xirwena typeface.

My orthography is experimental, and it can be changed. I would like to be able to distinguish between ow "my" and o'  "-ing". I would rather not use a hyphen (ow- "-ing") as in Cornish Simplified, and I don't want to use another diacritical mark (e.g. òw). I could use ow, ou or ov for either "my" or "-ing" if o' is out of favour. If I make ow "-ing" which do you recommend for "my" for my orthography, and what does KS do?

My translation is there to be used. Anyone can do as he or she wishes with it.
My only quibble with your orthography is this: you use what is essentially an Middle Cornish spelling,
but you write the "participle" particle <o' >.
The Middle Cornish spelling is always <ow>, <ou> or <ov>, and <ow> is by far the most frequent. <O> is Late Cornish and is not as common as <a> for this morpheme.
