Stitch Maynia 2021 Start #22

 At first glance, this might look like it's not part of the seasonal theme, but there's a good way to shoe horn this into the theme. I hope to give this as a Christmas present to a friend, and I'm starting another one tomorrow, same design, but different colours. 

It will eventually look like this one I stitched way back in 2011:

with DMC variations

There is a lot of stitching in these, as those who are familiar with blackwork will understand. I remember this one took quite a while to complete, and it might have been my first foray into blackwork at the time. I still enjoy it now too. 

Here's my start of around 450 stitches:

with Flamenco by Jodyri Designs


This is for a friend that loves to read, obviously, but also loves red and black plaid/flannel, etc. I think this will turn out perfectly for her. 

I'm not being particularly fussy on colour placement in this one, just using the opposite colour from what I finished with when I start a new thread, etc. 

I hope you've all been staying well and thank you so much for your comments. I'm behind on replies, but I'm working on it!

Happy Stitching,
