Only $15 to buy, Invaluable when you have it...

After designing cross stitch patterns I was looking for something new. Something that was easy to stitch for young and old and I did design my first blackwork pattern.

It was not what i expected. It did not look the way I wanted and I had no idea what I was doing wrong.

Then I did see this book and did buy it. For this small price it was worth trying it.

If I did not like the book I had lost a few euro's, but I find it great.

Now I understand why my patterns were not the way I wanted and it was so easy to change them in a better design. I can add some gold in my designs now and this book did inspire me for many more patterns.

Look at http://stitch-creations.blogspot.com/search/label/blackwork to see what i could make after reading this book.

Carol, thank you for this great book.

Greetings Anita

You are doing great!

Thank you for the glowing compliments. I am so glad you found the book useful.

You have certainly put it to good use! I love your little tortoise and that little sampler is cute.

I really enjoy teaching my love of blackwork to people all around the world and its such fun when they "get it" and start running off in their own direction.

Well done!
