11. black work
This week my first design
for black work. It is countable embroidery and only the double running
( Holbein stitch) is used. Black work was during several periods very
popular. Mostly it was used for cloth. You can make beautiful samplers
by combining borders and plain filling designs. There are more the 100
designs for black work on this site.
Floss:Two strands of six-stranded black floss.
