This design was inspired by the acorns and leaves from the Oak trees around the designers neighbourhood.
This is a contemporary design which takes traditional stitching techniques into a smaller shape which we hope will help you finish it faster :-). It is a freeform outline with counted thread work as the design fills. This design can be matched with Gingko. This design is best suited to an intermediate stitcher.

Blackwork Embroidery has been practiced for many centuries with methods changing as a result of the development of different materials and styles over this time. Today Blackwork remains heavily influenced by Moorish designs and now commonly uses threads in colours other than black. This is an example using geometric blackwork patterning.
