Yesterday, I came across this interesting magazine at the CNA called "FLOW".  It is a Dutch publication for paper lovers.  It has a simple layout and well written.  As the envelope says "heaps and heaps of creative inspiration!"

Spanish Black Work Embroidery

Years ago my Aunt gave me a tea cozy that she embroidered a Spanish Black work design on.  Whilst I could have used it, it was an incomplete embroidery. It has been sitting in my cupboard for years!  I decided that it was no use in a cupboard, so, I cut it up and made brooches and necklaces. (Will never let Aunt know as she would be very disappointed)  Despite them being vintage pieces they are kind of in fashion as they are done in a geometric design and even more special as they are one of a kind!
