Save the Stitches Update

So I took the week off from working on Snow White so that I could actually get a little done on something else. This week I decided to work on my Blackwork Sampler - It's called Save the Stitches and it is by Elizabeth Almond. It is a free pattern available on her website, I am doing mine in blues, because I love how a deep blue looks on white :) I was able to work on this at the EGA meeting this week, which was fun.

Here was my last update:

And here is where it is today:

The blackwork stitches up so much faster than cross stitches do, and it's fun to figure out a good way to work across the pattern. I had a lot of fun with this, but I think I am ready to go back to Snow White this week. :) 


  1. That looks great! I have been toying with the idea of starting this one, but I haven't quite decided to yet. Yours is coming along nicely, though!

  2. Nice to have a break with a big project to keep you enthusiastic, especially with something so pretty and quick!

  3. Holy cow, you made a ton of progress! Great job!

  4. Hello, I just found these photos on a google search for Blackwork and just had to come here and tell you how much I love this.
    Excellent work!
