Blackwork Project



I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and Good Pesach. Sadly, after an ugly chocolate binge, my pants and I are currently estranged. We hope to reconcile soon.

At the April EGA meeting, one of the women (Joan) had a great blackwork project for us. She came equipped with perfect instructions and blackwork patters, which was good as I had never worked with it before. I choose this cute owl and may plaster it to the side of an eco-friendly shopping bag (which I have yet to sew, so that may have to wait for a bit).

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and enjoy the much awaited warm weather!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Your dog is ADORABLE!!! I see you like small ones as well.
You did a really nice job on the blackwork owl, I think it would look great on an eco friendly bag.

Hmmm, my pants and I are a bit estranged too. Humph. Your owl is just gorgeous and would look great on a bag. Dutch Sampler is so fun-glad you got back to it!
