Tudor Rose Blackwork

 image024
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 piece is a very simple Tudor Rose.  It can be tiled to create distinctive motifs and borders.  It works well in when reduced to create cuff and collar borders.
