Well the technique is blackwork, and thank you to my ever patient tutor, Shirley from “Stitches and Life”. I have just started on a sampler piece and trying different variations. Decided to do it in blue as some years ago Shirley started me on drawn thread work and the edging on this piece of lugano is all I ended up doing!! Typical! The Blackwork is very addictive and very fun. Thank you for starting me off, Shirley (and feeding and coffeeing me).
