Some designs work in both blackwork and cross stitch.
The cross stitch lacemaker was originally designed for the National Christmas Lacemakers Fair, held in Birmingham each year. She proved so popular, selling out on the first day, that I was soon asked to create a blackwork version of the same design.
Later, a partner, the blackwork stitcher, was added to the range.
If you haven't tried blackwork before you might find my beginners blackwork e-book helpful to teach you the basics.
