TimesPlus (Contemporary Blackwork)



TimesPlus is a contemporary Blackwork design and is based on the two symbols times and plus (cross). I thin these symbols are very contemporary and have endured time. For each design I have put the other inside which gives the design the added depth.¬† The design features stem and backstitch so is a good step up for someone who is a cross-stitcher and wants to try Blackwork. All outlines are charted and there are the 2 different Blackwork sampler patterns which are detailed in the instructions. A favourite for people in 20-30’s so if you are looking for something to make them!

My designs take the traditional methods and making them relevant for todays interiors.

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
