Blackwork Embroidery

The small pin cushion I made last yr. after taking a class at the local library. I found it so calming to work on and I loved the little pattern it made. It is blackwork embroidery. I haven't been able to find alot of info for beginners. There is a book called Blackwork for Beginners but it didn't help me so much. So I started the same pattern again. I am not sure who will receive the new pin cushion. This one belongs to my mom. I am thinking to try and make it into a sachet filled with lavender. Maybe I will do more and give as small gifts for the holidays.

I really like that pattern. The simplicity of black and white is quite nice. It reminds of the work of Charlene Mullen who I recently discovered and mentioned on my blog.
