I swear I'm the only stitchy person on the 'net who hasn't yet found their JCS ornament issue yet. Hasn't shown up at my normal sources. But I'll be patient. Otherwise I've got to drive a hour to find one. I know it'll appear soon, but everyone's talking about what they like the best. Waaaa!
a link to the Tristan Brooks website and the Pineapple Pleasures blackwork piece done in red - actually designed by Barbara Jackson and meant to be stitched with Pearsall's silk.

But hey, if you can't fudge the thread choices on blackwork, then maybe you need another hobby???
