Blackwork Board sampler progress #1

IMG_1744

I’ve always liked how blackwork looks, but it seems that it’s not a very popular form of embroidery. I thought that making a blackwork sampler in the style of a chess board (every second square will be filled) would be a good idea to not only get more practice with it but also to show others just how good blackwork can look.

Of course, there are many people who can do blackwork better than I can. Just looking at some of the blackwork photos on Flickr can show you that! But it’s still fun to do, and I won’t improve by not practicing, after all!
