  1. This is beautifully intricate. Am off to Google blackwork, because it’s not something I’ve come across.

    • It’s just what it sounds like – black threads on white background. Popular since Henry VIII -Catherine of Aragon possibly brought it to England. Believe it or not there is more detail to be added, as there’s a separate chart to add to the leaves etc! Been doing the letters today and that’s a little tricky!
