Today I joined Anne-Marie and Betsy to start a new Flickr Group,
Blackwork and all Black & White Needlework
The Icon for the group is this picture of linen embroidered with black silk and silver gilt threads from the last decade of the sixteenth century,
" Stylised Honeysuckle Motif"
Original size 7.5 x 7.5 cm.
From the Embroiderer's Guild collection (EG207), illustrated in 'Blackwork' by Lesley Barnett, Search Press.
We were unable to find a group for Blackwork so decided to start one although it seems it may be a minority interest group.
Anyone interested is invited to join - no need to actually do Blackwork - just enjoy.
