Ages ago I found some Blackwork patterns of Arthur, Guinevere & Merlin online & they've been in my to-do stash forever. I finally finished the Merlin one yesterday.


detail:


Now I need to find more of the fabric so the pictures of Arthur & Guinevere will match, but I bought it so long ago. You can't really tell with these pics, but it's sort of oatmeal & gold metallic.

Thanks for looking

I love this! Do you remember where you found the patterns? I am obsessed with all things Arthurian and I would love to make these. Your stitches look perfect, btw.  Smiley

I have many crochet and plastic canvas booklets/leaflets from the 70's, 80's, and 90's that I am interested in trading for a variety of items. PM me if you would like a list of what I have.

Unfortunately no, it was probably close to 10 years ago.

So I log into Craftster on Christmas afternoon, and I see a thumbnail of a lovely blackwork Santa Claus (of the "old-fashioned robe" variety). . . Cheesy

Nice work.  I can see why it took you a while to work up the energy.

Wow!  That is amazing, you did a wonderful job with the detail.  I hope you can find more of the fabric for Arthur and Guinevere too- they will make a wonderful set!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!

Sadly I do not remember. I got the pics off the internet way back in the day. I tried looking for them again recently, in case the designer was still selling them, but my Google-Fu was not that strong.

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