&Stitches put out a challenge to try blackwork with colours. As I’d been meaning to blackwork for a while, I decided to join them. I did 4 random patterns using Crushed Berries and Crushed Heart mulberry silk threads by Dragonflylotus Designs Handspun Threads. You can see some of the other ones in the &Stitches Flickr pool, but this one is my favourite (admittedly, probably because I love the colours just as much as I love the patterns).

The second section is nearly done #embroidery #blackwork

Pretty much done, just filling in the dashed lines between each pattern #blackwork #crossstitch

Finished filling in the previously dashed lines between each pattern, so now it's officially done. #blackwork #embroidery
