Just a quickie post to show you all how my blackwork trial worked out. It is a small project from a SAL organised by Claire on her English blog and her French blog. I’ve used 16 count aida fabric and DMC 6 stranded embroidery floss (a single strand was used for sewing the design).
Here is the work in progress and the lovely clear free chart called Summer Flowers:
I’ve made it into a card. I hope you like it
Claire has opened my eyes to another form of embroidery that I have really enjoyed. I plan to make a much bigger design when my cross stitch is off the frame
Time to sew now!
