I took one of my favorite pictures from our trip last year and am doing a blackwork piece. I think I've been doing Hardanger for several years now so doing blackwork again feels good. Of course, blackwork takes alot longer and results don't come so fast. I remember now that the outline is very important in blackwork but it is done pretty much last. The piece is coming along though and I wanted to share the first part which actually sort of looks like something.
So....maybe this is the next level. I don't know. I've never attempted any blackwork piece like this so it is something new. I'll post as it progresses.
