Blackwork Leaves

As part of my C&G course I am doing a study of the History of English Embroidery. I am up to the Elizabethan period and had to design a piece of blackwork. I used leaves as my inspiration and wanted the piece to be on white felt so pinned a piece of linen over the top to act as a guide.

I removed the linen when it was complete.

Wow Shiela, well done. Bet you had fun removing all the threads from the linen.

Love your blackwork piece: interesting & unusual to see it on felt.
Best of wishes for a happy, healthy & productive 2008. :0)
