We are having a SAL on our community of San Man Originals Monthly Blackwork (members of SMO board only charts). We are trying to do one of these a month. They are 60x60. I am stitching all of them on 28ct white opalescent lugana. 4x4 (I am adding two extra blackworks at the bottom and the year and my initials..)
The first is January. It is stitched in Carries Creations Thread - Snowflake, using clear beads (stitched on with the snowflake thread to match the colors), and in the corners are Mill Hill Treasure Snowflakes.

The February Blackwork was stitched with Carrie's Creations Thread - Love Always. It also used clear Mill Hill beads stitched with the Love Always to match the beads to the design. The corner treasure have not come in yet, but will be red hearts...
