Blackwork Embroidery piece

The piece I have been working on is the Polychrome counted thread embroidery from the Jane Bostocke sampler, year 1598. I chose one portion of the sampler to work on. This piece that is being documented below is the second piece of blackwork that I have worked on. I recently started branching out doing blackwork over the past 5 months. I have been doing mainly cross stitch for the most of my life since I was a kid when my Aunt taught me how to cross stitch.
