Crazy January Challenge 3/15 "Zeugma"

Crazy January Challenge continues and I have to confess that for this third start I got an inspiration from Amalia from the blog Mummon kammarissa. :) She has started to stitch this and I just like this so much that I had to add it to my list too. I stitched about 60% of the chart this evening. 



Chart: Pelin Tezer freebie "Zeugma - A Bookmark for Mom"
Fabric: black 30ct linen
Stitched with two threads over two with DMC Colour Variations 4030
 
The colour looks very blue in the picture, the real colour is this one:

I don't think I ever thanked you for sharing all those lovely freebies around Christmas. You increased my collection by so much! Thanks:)

Hi Sari

Thanks for following my blog! :)

Oh wow, the blue on black looks great!
I haven't used black linen before.
Is it hard to see where to stitch on such a dark fabric?

Happy Stitching
Bec

That's lovely! Inspiring colour combination. Something I would never think of myself, but then when you see it, you know it works!

It is a bit hard to see the holes in the black fabric. I have a white paper on my lap, it helps a bit and then after a while you don't have to see the holes as you learn to see where the next stitch should go.

This colour combination is a bit different than what I usually go with but I thought I should stitch something other than red for a change. :D I like the greenish blue colour of the thread.
