Another hard letter to find something for, so I played fast and loose with the subject/content again! I'm beginning to worry about letters like Q and X. I had nothing like 'igloo' or 'ice cream', so I decided to find something intricate and came up with blackwork.
Recently, I've been very intrigued by blackwork patterns. They're so amazingly intricate and symmetrical, at least the ones I've become enamored with seem to be. I love how some of them even look like those moving-illusion pictures.
I did one blackwork pattern a long time ago. It's called Tudor Rose Garden and it was a free pattern.
I couldn't find anything else I really liked at the time so I didn't do any more blackwork, but I recently found some patterns on eBay that I've been drooling over. These three are my favorite (I don't own them yet)
Simple Squares (simple! ha!)
I'm not buying them yet, I'm waiting until I have a few more finishes because I know I will want to start one as soon as I get them.
Tomorrow's post will be mostly stash - and I have a lot of pictures! : D
