The spaces between #3
Number three of these charts that spend as much time considering the spaces between the filled bits as the the filled bits themselves.
I love a sampler, something meditative to stitch that shows off some fills in their pure glory. I fell in love with blackwork because of the fills and felt the need to return, with this series of charts, to something simple, with the fills playing a major role in the design but the voids in between the filed elements are important here too, giving the fills some space to be splendid in!
It may surprise you to hear that this curvy design uses just straight up and down, side to side and corner to corner stitches in this one, no longer diagonals and no half stitches so good for all ability levels and very suitable for those new to blackwork.
More investigations into the spaces between are on their way!
