I wanted to get a post up days ago but have been slowed down by new computer hardware and finding my way about.
It´s the last Friday of the month, so I´m joining Mary of Mary´s Thread today for this month´s Smalls SAL check-in.
This embroidery is a free design called Blackwork Anemone by Lesley Teare and can be found here. The pattern was generously shared as a SAL started in January and released in twelve weekly installments.
I loved the pretty colours at first sight and wonderously had all the DMC floss numbers mentioned in the chart, not having to buy or substitute any colour which is usually the case.
Each section of the leaves shows a different blackwork pattern and a splash of floss colour and although I enjoy doing French knots, I changed them, as suggested by Leslie, for seed beads to add a touch of bling.
I´m not sure what destination I shall give this pattern, maybe just add a frame as I hardly ever frame my stitcheries......... something like this ......
Perhaps not such a dark frame, I just had this one on hand and will have to see what I can find and then maybe I could create a collage wall of embroideries? .... hmm.
Thank you for stopping by and looking, until next week.
