Comments: Sometimes there are interesting coincidences. I wanted to learn how to do blackwork properly and was looking for a good source to learn from when I won this course written by Dakota Rogers for EGA.

When we have our meetings at EGA CyberStitchers, we sign in daily for each meeting and at the end of that day there is a drawing of two names and these winners get to pick a prize shown in special photo albums on the Yahoo group where we hold these meetings and I chose this project.

As soon as I received it through the mail, I purchased the necessary material and stitched it right away. I found blackwork ro be a very enjoyable form of needlework and I have done many other projects afterwards, which I will add to my blog later on.

Lace ribbons has been finished as a pillow with cording around it and tassels added at each corner.
