Blackwork Close Up

A sneak peek of my current blackwork commission.

The pattern is a simplified version of the cuffs worn by Jane Seymour in the Holbein painting. The full version of this pattern was the first piece of blackwork I stitched, so it is nice to re-visit it.

It's just over an inch and a half wide, and is stitched on linen with silk embroidery thread.
