Save the Stitches, block 2

This is block two of the Save the Stitches blackwork sampler from Blackwork Journey. Five blocks have been released so far. The bulk of it is black (DMC 310); I substituted red (DMC E815) for gold, blue (DMC E334) for silver, and purple (DMC E3837) for copper. The red beads are Mill Hill antique glass beads (03049) and the purple bead is a Mill Hill antique glass bead (03505). I’m still not sure I like my metallic choices; the purple and blue don’t show up as well as I might like.

The whole thing so far:
