>In addition to black cross stitch (=Schwartzcreuzstickerei in German), I
>have done 'real' blackwork too.  I was pregnant with my first kid and did
>one of the 'pregnant Tudors' from the Holbein of Thos. Moore and family - a
>'Tudor station wagon.  The undershirt has double-sided blackwork cuffs, and
>all the edges which show are finished with buttonhole stitch and a row of
>needle lace, also black.
