||Save the Stitches - A Blackwork Journey
Finished size 14.29" x 29.29" 180 x 380 stitches. This is my first time doing blackwork. Also first time working on evenweave.
First I wanted to do it rainbow because I don't like working with black, but couldn't figure out how to handle the metallics with all those colors. Then I decided to do it in 4 shades of one color. But the light was too light and I still had the metallics problem. Then I compromised and decided to do it in black (yuck) with a rainbow assortment of satins. Dmc 6 strand cotton 310, Dmc Perle Cotton No 12 310, DMC Satin S552, S3230, S321, S995, S700, S741, with Mill Hill Seed Beads (size 11) 02101, 02105, 02013, 02097, 02054, 02096
