A peek at some black work in progress...


I am working on a black work piece using my "free" embroidery floss that I received from my sister's mother-in-law. I'm excited because I chose the colors based on the fact that I just wanted to try them. It was something different. I don't really have much in my house that is turquoise, so I'm not really sure where I will display it when it is complete. But I am really enjoying stitching it. I'm stitching on 14 count Aida. I did try this on 32 count cashel linen but the eye strain was killing me and my stitching suffered considerably. So, until I get more practice, I will be doing black work on Aida fabric!

I love the color combination you chose. Aqua is one of my favorite colors.
