Blackwork update

I do realise I become very bad with my posts . They are very rare now but to say the truth I have no idea where my time is going .
I made a bit of progress on my Blackwork embroidery but not to much . I kind of drag my feet about but I think I will get few more small projects which I hope will hook me on the technique.

I need to do a bit more work to the ear as I did not get it properly for the moment .
I don't know if the multitude of the stitches are not making the design to busy but I try to get the movements of the hair and the curls using different kind of stitches .
For the skin tones I try to get the shading from the weight of the thread rater than the stitches variety .
Anyway I start to very very happy with the results which I think is the main think .

Happy crafting to all


  1. WOW.......FANTASTIC !!!!!

  2. the stitches you are using are very appropriate this is going to be a real treasured work of art.

  3. Wow! I think this is fantastic, Renata. Not sure I have the patience for such a detailed project! Hang in there, it will be worth it :)

  4. Thanks very much all of you , is very encouraging seeing people appreciative. I hope by the end of the week to have some more done and maybe more pictures
