Blackwork in Purple – Purplework!

I feel like I’ve been so productive lately, but I’ve been making Christmas presents so I can’t show them off. But I wanted to show a sneak peak of my current project.
Over at &Stitches, they declared November the month of color. They gave the challenge to create a blackwork piece, in color. I had seen blackwork before, and while I found it impressive, I was never really interested in doing it myself. Changing the black thread to a color makes such a big difference, it feels so much more fun and modern.

Teresa from Daisies for Violet made an incredible color wheel using blackwork patterns. And checkout the &Stitches blackwork projects that are underway, I can’t wait to see the finished pieces.
