So I've returned to embroidery once again, and I decided I'd like to try a few traditional things before getting back to freeform/contemporary Smiley





The second one is still incomplete, hahah. They're nothing fancy, but I rather like them.
The patterns are from: http://www.blackworkarchives.com/

Thanks everyone   Grin
rectangel - sorry, I don't know what waste canvas is. This is just regular evenweave linen, and I counted the squares. I think it's two squares per line b/c the squares are so small. That's what my textiles teacher told me anyway.
