100 Details In 100 Days - Day 23


Motif Blackwork Strawberry
Originally uploaded by Kitty And Me.
I've always loved combining Blackwork with counted cross stitch. It really makes for an interesting design!

Today's 100 Details In 100 Days chart is a Blackwork Strawberry combined with a bit of realistic cross stitch.

There are lots of things you could do with this chart. Stitch it the way I designed it on white fabric or try working the strawberry with white thread on red fabric or even black fabric. You could substitute light yellow sead beads for the yellow DMC thread. It could be stitched on pink or pastel yellow fabric instead of white.

Lots of options here with this design!

Enjoy!

This is enough to get me to think about learning cross stitch, Pamela! I've never done it...but your designs for CQ are just so compelling....
