Stumpwork sample

blackcurrents you could almost eat but they are made of thread

Here are the results of today’s stumpwork workshop (photo not very good but I’ve put the bobbin there to give some idea of the size). I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. Sometimes just sewing and doing exactly what you are told without having to make dozens of design decisions is very therapeutic and relaxing. I wouldn’t mind doing more. The blackcurrants, by the way, are beads covered with thread. The raspberries are clusters of French knots.

    OO i like the scale of these, so dimunitive and dainty–and the thread covered beads sure gives a person *more* ideas to try out—sigh:>
