so in this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=404582.msg4763376#msg4763376 I told you about my RSN course and Crewelwork project.

well this is my next project - Blackwork



I did not anticipate how much work this would take as much intensive stitching as it did!

but finally it is done, just have to fill in the form and hand it in for grading.

the materials I used were:

Edinburgh linen

DMC - coton a broider
         Stranded cotton
         Machine thread
         Gossemer thread
         Invisible thread - not DMC (can't remember the company name) this was used to on the "Fluffy" bits around the ears.

by the way, I don't like it, but I think if I don't see it for a while it will grow on me!

It is so cool to see blackwork used in a modern design.  I've only ever seen samplers or traditional pieces.  I love the way you used it here.
