Second steps in blackwork

Took even longer than the first lot but am now a bit happier with it. A few errors this time but was able to incorporate them into the design - lets just say some of the patterns are not those originally intended. Now understand the link between some of our line design/drawing/scribbling work and stitching. Wouldn't it be nice if blackwork was as quick as it is to scribble and scrawl with a pencil?

First steps in blackwork

This totally screwed my eyes up - good lighting and glasses are a necessity. Still think it looks rather chunky so will give it another go (sigh) on a higher (i.e. finer) count thread fabric. Yawn. Wouldn't be so bad apart from the fact I had to unpick this a fair bit when I had miscalculated spacing etc. Think I have more unpicked thread in the bin than was actually used on this piece.
