Quatrefoil Blackwork

 image002
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 one can work as small as 1″.  It is a very old design, and works especially well where you need a small line ofblackwork.It is presented in two colors so you can eliminate the connecting stitches at the right end of your row.
