I wanted to learn a couple of new skills this year, 2019. I decided on improving my knitting skills, exploring texture & colour, I also wanted to learn 'Blackwork', something I have wanted to do for many years.
|Blackwork Journal - December 2019|
This month, I want to continue working on traditional blackwork. Last month, I worked from a portrait of Mary Tudor, basing my design around the collar. This month, I wanted to design my own pattern, with Tudor flowers in mind.
I started with a plain flower, with stem & leaves. but, soon realised that this will not make a geometric pattern. But, I do intend on using this next year.
|Stitching Project - 2019|
I used 14 count Cream Aida & DMC Black Embroidery Thread.
My own blackwork design.
This concludes my Blackwork Journal, 2019.
