Blackwork First Attempt

I'm pretty happy with the results....especially for a first attempt. It is small enough to have actually gotten done in a couple of days. I might do more...but, the project will have to be one that really intriques me as the same pattern for a large area could get boring. 
 
Of course, MY blackwork...is not black...as my muse rarely does anything "by the rules". This is one of the three HEX designs offered at StitchMAP this month.

Lots of blackwork designs lend themselves beautifully to CQ seam treatments - I use them all the time.

very nice leaf, how about doing a few with different blackwork stitches in each one

What fabric did you use? Just curious:)

I saw a portrait done in Blackwork recently that was amazing. I don't think I'd want to attempt anything so complicated but it was very different and unique.
