Spring Garden SAL
For the next month, Aurelia at Elgantine Stitchery is hosting a SAL. I really love blackwork and this design works beautifully.
I'm going to be using some different colours than the ones in the pattern, because I love doing blackwork in variegated threads! I didn't have any variegated pinks or reds, so I'm going for purples instead.
The threads I'm using are DMC 4045, 4065, 4077, 4235 and Weeks Dye Works 'Ultraviolet'. The aida I'm using isn't quite as blue as in the photo, it's a very pale, slightly mottled blue-grey piece that I picked up a while ago.
If you fancy joining in, just click on the first picture and it will take you to the announcement post, with all the information you'll need.
