I've got a ton of stitched projects that I have never bothered to frame. Recently I have been doing mini quilted wall hangings and so today I thought I would do some of my stitching up like that, rather than have it hang forever in the closet.


Because I didn't want a busy pattern do detract from the actual stitching, you can barely see this is a two tone border, with a thin border of black inside a subtle black and gray patterned fabric. I was really into blackwork when I did this. Below is a closeup of some of the actual patterns.



This one is a bit less serious.



This one is a bit small to turn into a wall hanging, so I haven't quite decided what to do with it yet.



Thanks for looking.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

The blackwork is amazing, and I love that you're going to hang up the piece and enjoy it!

Thanks for all the nice comments. I really like the blacwork there too. I remember the hardest thing about that piece was finding a decent quote to stick in there.

Ah, thread necromancy - so good for the ego.
Here is a closer pic of the lettering - a bit blurry.

I found myself totally entranced by the blackwork.
That had to take patience to complete.
