Blackwork sampler II

Garden Paradise Blackwork sampler II from Stitcher´s world September 2004 is the pattern do.This is one of four squares.I have used DMC black 2 threads and DMC goldcoloured 2 threads.It's my first project in blackwork and perhaps I have this as a square in the niddle when I do a purse or.....It's really hard with gold thread and this is the first little embroidery and I know I'm going to do more.

Wish you good luck with what you are doing.

Hello Ulla,
your blackwork square looks lovely. I've never done blackwork, but I did some squares in redwork,

Very nice blackwork piece. I have only done small pieces in blackwork, nothing this big and it's a lot of fun. You've done a great job with this one and the gold thread gives it a special something :-)

Black work is a lovey technique and i hope i can go on and perhaps do another design.
