Black inspirations

Black inspirations

Here I am again, with another non-official color of the rainbow. But, after seeing the amazing things you guys do with blackwork, black fabric, and black threads, I must say I'm feeling the black magic. I love black - it goes without saying - but there's something about using the color black in embroidery that makes the work that much bolder and more dramatic...

Are you a fan of the blackwork, too? If it was down to one color for you... out of all the colors you've seen... and maybe one more surprise color... tomorrow - could you pick one?

Hi, I'm floresita, editor of Feeling Stitchy. I'm an avid stitcher, knitter, and crafter. You can see more of my stitching on Instagram and my blog. My vintage transfer collection is on Vintage Transfer Finds.

Feel free to email me with any ideas for the blog!


  1. I'm stitching a project on black right now! just a pain to see the white tracing lines sometimes as they brush off easily X( worth it though as the effect is so striking.

  2. Loving the last one by Sarah Blick... & the previous pink & purple posts... my fave colours!

  3. I, unfortunately, am un able to pick just one. I love all the colors, all the shades or all the hues. Oh, and when you combine them all together, oh happy day! I guess I would have to say the rainbow is my favorite :)


  4. Yeah these colors are just too fun! I don't think I could pick just one, blue, maybe red, see, can't do it. ;)
