Flower Finished

I finished the big flower in the middle of the band this week. It's pretty much the whole length of the band. There are some vines and smaller flowers to each side that I've started. Blackwork takes a lot longer than people think. After all, it's only double running stitch, right?

You are so right that black work takes longer to do than you think. It also uses a lot more thread too. The Swiss Sampler GCC took me almost 2 months to do especially including all the frogging due to mis-counting.

The piece looks great and makes me want to take the Tiramisu GCC.
