Black and White Sampler
This is my project from my Blackwork class on Saturday. The teacher is a member of my EGA chapter, she was a bit unsure on the accuracy of the directions so she had a group of us over as a test class to have us stitch the piece and see if there were other errors she had missed in the charts.I am almost halfway done right now and its been pretty good, only a few small things, definitely not something for someone with no clue how to do blackwork to take up as a couple of them weren't so easy to catch. I hopefully will have this done this week so I can get back to her with anything else I might find, then the matter will be in the finishing. I was actually thinking this would look fabulous as a bell pull, no frame at all. This is my first true blackwork piece even though there has been a lot of it in the Indigo Rose pieces I've done. And for the most part this one is reversible with a few exceptions for things like the alphabet and the queen stitches.
