Round Robin # 22

There is another Round Robin I am participating in on Swap-Bot. This piece involves Blackwork Embroidery. I have never heard of this type of stitching before, so I looked in my cross stitching books and studied up on it. Very interesting and tedious. So I gave it a try and created a pattern of my own with the patterns provided in one of my books.

Round Robin #22

Date Completed my Section: June 21, 2014
Theme: Blackwork

I used the patterns to create my own from "The Cross Stitcher's Bible" by Jane Greenoff... (Pages 60-62)
