Blackwork - complete!

Here is my first finished blackwork project. It is intended as a set of cuffs and collar for a shirt. I made it with the thought that I would give it away. My back side is not as perfect as I would like it to be; ultimately I would like my work to be indistinguishable front from back. I have already chosen the pattern for my next project, a set of cuffs. It is a little more complicated. I think if each project gradually increases in difficulty I will improve without being overwhelmed.

*Fabric: Zweigart linen "Belfast" 32ct. in Antique White

*Thread: Soie d'Alger "NOIR" single strand

EDIT: This blackwork sold for $35 at an auction to benefit the Shire of Crosston.
