Blackwork Forehead Cloth – WIP5

Further progress on my late 1500’s English style, freehand embroidered, blackwork forehead cloth. It is flat silk on linen, and I am just starting the third row of the design. The design is my own, inspired by multiple period examples. The plan is to have this done in the next three weeks, in time for the Pentathlon competition, Kingdom of Caid, SCA.
