BLACKWORK, cross stitch BLACKWORK is a form of embroidery generally using black thread.  It is a counted-thread embroidery usually stitched on even-weave fabric.  Earlier in the year I asked if any of the members of the Embroidery Guild of Victoria did Blackwork as I wanted to show some using my threads.  Fortunately Johanna stitches various other forms of embroidery.  The above is a BLACKWORK pattern from Bryd’s Nest HERE.  The stem is size 5 perle cotton, Colour #18. The flower is stitched with floss from an older sampler pack. The Blackwork patterning is stitched using Edmar Iris #040. COLOUR COMPLEMENTS THREADS The second sample below is CROSS STITCH.  The needle case measures 3″ wide by 5″ long.  The border uses floss in Colour #39.  The pattern was a freebie found on the web.

Thank you Johanna.
