The blogs by Laren and Racaire are some of my favourites (see links below). Their embroidery is stunning, and I really appreciate the way they share their information. This week, they both posted some very interesting tutorials. Do yourself a favour, and take a look!
Laren posted a great tutorial about blackwork embroidery, including pictures, background info and how to instructions. Take a look at her pfd here:
And her research page with other interesting handouts here
And Racaire posted her wonderful tutorials about klosterstitch and refilsaum . These have pictures, background info and instructions too.
