About

Blackwork Embroidery Designs

Blackwork is a centuries-old form of embroidery going back to Elizabethan times, when clothing was decorated in delicate hand-stitched blackwork patterns. These designs were commonly stitched with black silk threads, and so were called blackwork.

My mom taught me how to cross-stitch almost 30 years ago, it's always been one of my favorite pass-times. When I discovered blackwork embroidery, I fell in love with the intricate, lacy patterns that are created with such a very simple stitch.

My designs grow from quick sketches on whatever paper is at hand, are transformed onto graph paper, and then drawn in design software. Then the stitching, frogging, re-graphing, re-stitching process begins! And continues until the design is complete - when it makes my heart happy :)

Whenever I have a free moment, I am either designing or stitching, with a Lab and a Corgi or three curled up nearby.
