The blackwork card holder is a great way to display your favourite cards.
It is also an ideal project to be run as a mini mystery with a stitching group. I have released the instructions in three stages so the project can be run over three gatherings.
In case you missed my email newsletter in December, you can now order a free PDF file for the Holly Instructions from the following page of my website: Holly Free Instructions
The holly is worked as a 2-sided embroidery so that the back of the embroidery looks like the same as the front.
The embroidery is worked on one piece of fabric, with the beginning and the end of the thread hidden beneath the stitches and the surface embroidery stitches worked in a particular method so that the embroidery is reversible.
