Using simple motifs as building blocks, C.J. shows us step-by-step ways we can create our own blackwork and embroidery masterpieces. Biscornus, fill patterns, and border patterns have opened my mind to a new world of possibilities.
More than 280 posts fascinate and inspire. One of my favorites is "Blackwork Floral Biscornu Pincushion Pattern Variation" (May 20, 2012):
|I love the shape of the leaves in this floral motif.|
C.J. also offers friendship bracelet patterns and there's a nifty little blog on bookbinding.
Oh yeah! And all the patterns are free!
