A Light in Darkness Blackwork

I found this beautiful blackwork project posted on Flickr by hanging-by-a-thread and I just love it. With the Olympics going on this week, it seemed like an appropriate thing to share.
There is a light that never goes out

If you have a moment or two today, I highly recommend checking out some more of her Flickr postings and her blog at Hanging By a Thread. She has beautiful work all around!

Happy Stitching!

  1. O.M.G!!!! This piece is absolutely gorgeous!!!! Thank you so much for sharing with us. 🙂

    • I wish I could take credit for the brilliance behind it, but all I did was spend way too many hours browsing cross stitch and blackwork photos on Flickr when I couldn’t sleep the other night :-p
