Oh my, Blackwork! A new love. If you haven't tried it, please do.
This month at guild Pat gave us a lesson. Most of the gals have done this before but I never attempted. I never thought I had the talent to do it. I thought the structure of it would not be to my liking since I live to do compensation stitches it seems. Pat was insightful and thorough in her explanation of making a trail and plotting it out and leaving a way back. It really appeals to my sense of order. I am having fun plotting the 'trails'. Although I may be a fan of compensating, this appeals to my mathematics side and my sense of organization.
This is my start of the 15 sided biscornu (free Internet pattern). Almost 3 done and 12 to go. I can do one in just over an hour so I should have no problem meeting the October deadline. I am sure my speed with pick up as I get more confident with my stitch path. Lucky for me, Pat is one of my Thursday stitching pals so if I get in trouble and run amuck, Pat can reign me in!
