Whitework progress

I am continuing with the Embroiderers Workbasket piece as I am determined to get it finished. The padding of the buttonhole stitch around the outer edge did take a significant amount of time. Still, happy with the way this piece is coming together.  

Blackwork

I have finally finished the blackwork “Hussif” piece that has been keeping me busy recently. I had wanted to enter it into the local Exhibition so I have been stitching away steadily on it. Making it up into a lovely little needlework roll has really been a challenge.
