Blackwork embroidery is a Primitive style of hand-work. Simple stitched lines are used to outline shapes, without any embroidered fill. Inspired by traditional redwork embroidery, blackwork, with its black thread and uneven stitches, has Primitive panache. This wonderful Primitive blackwork project is taken from Robin Vizzone's Peculiar Primitives—A Collection of Eclectic Projects.

Sheep and Crow are the unofficial mascots of all things Primitive.This framed blackwork is one of those items that can decorate a special spot in your home all year round. I think everyone could use some Primitive pals in their home.
