The Mystery Blackwork SAL Gallery

Hi everyone,

I thought you might like to see the Works In Progress from the Stitch Along so far. We are now three weeks into the project and there are a further three stages to go.

If you’ve missed the first parts but would like to stitch along with us, the latest chart will be posted tomorrow. You can join the group at any time and catch up with the rest of us at your leisure. Please let me know you are stitching along 🙂 If you are already stitching along, please send me a photo of your stitching by email (address on the right) and I’ll include it in the gallery below 🙂

I hope you like them all!

Mystery Blackwork Stitch Along Part 1

Welcome to Part 1 of my Mystery Blackwork SAL 🙂

My dear friend Claire introduced me to blackwork a few months ago and I’ve been very happily stitching along with her. Several of my regular readers will have stitched along too!

I have now charted my own design to share with all of you over the next few weeks and Claire has very kindly tested the complete chart. Of course, she has been sworn to secrecy, because this is a “Mystery” SAL. New stages will be released every Friday.

This is a small square project, only 62 stitches across and down. You will need a piece of your regular cross stitch fabric, embroidery thread, a needle and scissors. I’ve used 14 count aida fabric with one thread colour. You may wish to experiment with several colours. The choice is yours. You will need to stitch the entire design with one single thread to get the best finish (in my opinion) as the design is so fine and delicate.

So, be brave!! If you haven’t tried this type of embroidery before GO FOR IT 😀 Come on all you quilters! You know you want to try this. I’m sure you can spare about an hour a week to stitch along with us!

Here is my first part completed. Stage 1

If you are joining the SAL please:

  • Leave a comment to let me know you are stitching along
  • Mention which country you live in so we can all see how many countries are taking part
  • Send me a photo (via email) of your stitching at the end of each stage so I can update the gallery for everyone to see

Finally, before you download my chart, please REMEMBER this! The design is my own and is provided for your personal use only. It MUST NOT be copied, reproduced or sold in any form.  I am sorry if this sounds harsh but my designs and tutorials have been copied and/or sold before. Please play nicely. I like to share 🙂
