instead of idle stitching i did some searches on the net and found blackwork samplers.these look like fun and also give some direction and structure to my cop out heat therapy.i am picking and choosing the patterns i want to stitch because not all of them are appealing to me.

blackwork is very interesting in that it mimics lace, perhaps-and i am wild guessing- because in tudor times lace was a specialty of flanders and probably they imposed taxes and levies on it.and who knows even copyrights -note the irony.
alençon and chantilly were  established as lace centers much later.

i also downloaded a chart here. however, this looks like serious work and i don't think i'm ready for it yet.
you avid& knowledgeable stitchers feel free to correct me.
