I have finished the embroidery on my blackwork forehead cloth.  In the next week I will be turning it into an actual garment piece.  It is flat silk on linen, and the design is my own creation.  It is Elizabethan English style freehand blackwork embroidery.  Overall I’m very happy with how my blackwork strawberries came out, but I will also be happy to put this down for a while and work on other things.  It may be some time before I make the matching coif.
