Blackwork samplerJune 3, 2007 at 8:48 am | Posted in Embroidery | 1 Comment
This is a blackwork sampler I made a couple of years ago. Most of the patterns, including the idea of using squares of fixed size to show them off, come from the book Schwarzstickerei by Christine Stettner and Ulrike Clasen. I really like their modern take on blackwork. The braid pattern in the top left corner is from the Blackwork Embroidery Archives, where you can find lots of interesting patterns.
