Blackwork


In my quest to get better - at everything, I am currently focusing on embroidery.

Blackwork
Long story short,
as the name insinuates it is made with black emroideryfloss on a cream or white background.
It is a counted embroidery technique, using only straight stiches - which are then combined into geometric patterns. Often resembling leaves and flowers of sorts.

So I am currently giving this whole Blackwork-thing a try.

Until now I have draw a pattern I will work from, transfered in onto my fabric
(using a piece of fabric and not normal embroidery canvas, which also makes my try a bit more difficult, because that means I cannot count..)
