Blackwork Class

I’m really enjoying taking embroidery classes at the San Francisco School of Needlework and Design. They have great teachers and interesting classes. I love learning new embroidery techniques.

Blackwork Class at SFSNAD.

This was a two day class that went over all the different stitches that we would find in this kit. My progress so far:

The stitching is really meditative and easy.

So far, this star stitch is my favorite. It has the most steps, but I just love the look of it!! It’s going to take me awhile to complete this project!

Peppermint Purple SAL

I couldn’t resist starting the Peppermint Purple 2021 SAL!! The pictures of the 2020 SAL were beautiful and this 2021 SAL seems as if it will be just as pretty. As always, I am a little behind

Peppermint Purple 2021 SAL – block #1

I’m doing it in the colors called for. The blackwork was easier than I thought it would be and once I got into the rhythm of stitching, this block was done in no time! I’m going to try to get one block done each week, but we shall see.
