Blackwork Owl by Magical525 Blackwork Owl by Magical525
When I was in the UK last week I also treated myself to one little kit while we were in Liberty's - I was having a hard time choosing between the blackwork Owl and the picture of Liberty's and so I asked the kids which to choose. They decided I should get the blackwork owl. This is my first ever blackwork piece and I made it in less than an afternoon. I was pretty daunted by this as I hate backstitches with a vengeance however it wasn't as bad as I feared.

The kit is Jane Greenoff's Blackwork Beasts - Owl.
It's 3 x 2 1/2" / 6 x 8 cm.
It's mainly black with gold highlights and green cross stitches for the branch.

This is really well done! I love contrast of the black and gold thread.

That's really neat! Maybe someday I'll have to try this blackwork business.

ha ha ha. I think the only way is with a time-turner and last I checked it was only useable on Hogwarts grounds.
