Blackwork

It’s ages since I’ve blogged!!! Had such a busy summer – lots of holidays and visiting family. So back to Embroiderers Guild last Saturday- swapped my travelling book and needed some inspiration. At our Exhibition in June I was blown away by the fabulous work on display- particularly the blackwork. Never done this and I missed the workshop back in November. So a bit of research needed!! Bought a book – the Stitch Bible by Kate Hazel. Wow, it’s so useful! There is a very good section on blackwork. (Also crewelwork, hardanger and pulled thread work – but that’s for another time!!). Anyway, found some Aida in my stash and an embroidery hoop and started stitching. I haven’t got very far – started in the centre and I’m working outwards! Will post updates.
