Blackwork

In a recent Monday tester class in Central Office, I had the chance to try Blackwork taught by the fabulous Breda. Blackwork is a form of embroidery using black thread and sometimes includes accent coloured threads and beads. Historically, blackwork was used in the reign of Henry VIII on clothing.

Here is how I got on…
This pattern was a combination of back-stitch and cross-stitch with some beads thrown in for something a little extra. I really enjoyed this class and have since taken on a larger project
