Inspirations Calendar | October Project

29th September 2023

It’ll soon be time to turn our Inspirations Calendars to October, where Christine Burton’s exquisite Squarely Check from issue #113 is waiting for us.

This elegant blackwork pincushion is a beautiful, eye-catching design, created with gorgeous flower and star motifs.

Worked onto linen with black thread and embellished with a black tassel on each corner, a simple yet striking aesthetic is achieved.

Inspired by a 17th century German sampler, this delightful pincushion is an ideal introduction to blackwork.
