This past weekend was very exciting for me, I was finishing my mystery project (a couple more days and it’s done) and then I also felt this urge to make something in blackwork.
Blackwork is an embroidery technique where black thread is used (I’m sure you guessed that) and it’s done with holbein stitch or back stitch. What you see above is a design that I created over the weekend myself. Yes, myself! I sat down with a pencil and tried to transfer this very vague idea from my head onto the paper. And line after line something started to emerge. I’m very proud of myself as it is my first design and I quite like it.
What do you think?
