In the ongoing hoopla swap round 6 I chose a partner who listed Blackwork as a theme.  I've never actually done any blackwork but I think it is so beautiful, this was the perfect excuse!  I looked all over the place for a good design and finally settled on a tudor rose becuase my partner also listed Tudor History in her themes. 
While making this I was able to use all the different craft books I've gotten at rummage sales and thrift stores over the years to find different patterns which made me happy!
This took much longer than I expected but the end result was well worth it.  It was pretty easy to work on while vegged out on the couch in front of the TV too.  After the first few repeats of the pattern is done, you don't have to think too much.  Wink



Here are some in progress shots too in case you're interested...







Thanks for looking!!
