Acorns and Leaf Blackwork

 image018
Blackwork was a tradition with ladies of court in the 16th century, and continues to add beauty and grace to clothing, costuming, and linens.  I use my skill as a hand embroider to create a pattern that looks as much like a hand done piece as a machine can do while using the machine to its best advantage.

This is a very traditional pattern.  It works well tiled as a strip for cuffs and collars, or done as an overall pattern.
