Should this still be called blackwork if stitched in navy blue? Ah, one of life's little mysteries.
Many years ago a colour expert told me I shouldn't wear black but navy blue was pronounced quite suitable. I wonder if that "pearl of wisdom" was what influenced my choice here? I don't think so! In actual fact, I couldn't find my DMC 310 and this was next best.
Truth to tell I am not overly fond of blackwork but have you seen this designer's wonderful pieces. Pamela (one of my followers) has a note about Jeanine's blog Italian Needlework which showcases a fantastic designer and I admit to being tempted on some of the designs there. Hop on over and have a look.
The only other news of importance from my place is that the postman delivered a large parcel this morning. Look at all the lovely Japanese goodies.
Well that's all the news from my place. I'm off to do some more navywork!
