Blackwork embroidery

I don't know how many of you see my posts as I do not see any of your in my reading list . I have to go on each one of your blogs to see if is anything new.
Except this inconvenient all OK and good with life .
I manage to get together all my courage and start the Blackwork practise going on . My module in RSN is in October so hope to have time on off to finish this and to get a picture for the actual project.

Here's my lovely model
And here is my started piece
I am not really sure how much likeness is there but looking from a certain distance looks OK . I think...
Anyway I am happy I have got the courage to start .

Hope to manage to do some more by the weekend .

Happy crafting all

Royal School of Needlework

Yeah... There are three weeks after I got back from RSN and believe me or not I can get back on track .
I don't understand way but I am total confuse with what I want to do and I am at lost .
I have been finishing few old UFO's but yet I do not have the power to start my black work embroidery . I have second thoughts regarding my choice for the second module.
I have started a piece in Hampton and I do not like a bit how is coming out . I have start to prepare another picture and I am scared, ......SCARED you hear me ? Is first time when I am scared of doing something with the needle .
Anyway in a different plan I was having a bit of time to visit the Bloom Festival in Dublin and I was a bit disappointed . The main exhibitors  was more of a commercial nature than anything else.
I got back home with about 20 pictures all together and with the promise to not go back next year .
What I find there interesting was  a stall with butterfly cases and some of this butterfly give me an idea for some silk shading practise .

And then my beautiful Japanese rose can be another embroidery project.

I probably have to take out Tiger's ear and forget the fact after I took this pic he very much enjoy the taste of the flower.
Sometime I am asking my self if he didn't was a cow in a previous life as constant he is having a serving of this flowers.

Happy crafting all
