Jul. 12th, 2010 @ 02:37 pm Hello!
Thought I'd peep in here and see if anyone was still about.
I'm mostly into sort-of stumpwork. Here the last I finished....


approx. 17 hours of work in this one. and roughly 3 inches long.

sort-of stumpwork. all the real stumpwork i've ever seen leaves it on a panel. i thought it would be fun to make little 3-D embroidery creatures...though all i've done is beetles and bugs.

Very cool! I've done a couple stumpwork beetles from a Jane Nicholas book, but nothing so large as this. Love the bright green color!
