Pomegranate, from Catherine of Aragon

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 probably the best known piece by Catherine of Aragon, wife of Henry VIII.
