Stumpwork: Progress and Design

November 5, 2011 at 10:31 pm 3 comments

Currently I am completing pieces and a folio for the Intermediate Certificate in Stumpwork with the Embroiderer’s Guild.

Our class was taught by the ever enthusiastic master craftswoman, Alison Cole.

We need to complete two minor pieces of stumpwork and one major piece. I have completed a stumpwork Coneflower which I designed to cover an antique brass based pincushion inherited from my grandmother.

My second piece is a beetle mounted onto a teeny circular box.

The major piece is inspired by Art Deco and is a monogram style design to fit a jarrah box:

    Well done – they results will be lovely I’m sure, and I look forward to seeing them. I admire your dedication doing an Intermediate in Stumpwork….not my scene I think, but I might be doing a Canvas Work one next year, and that will complete my three. Cheers.
