I had a marvelous day yesterday with the Embroiderer's Guild doing a beginner's stumpwork class with the talented Cecily Dow. This class is in preparation for the intermediate certificate I intend to do later in the year with Alison Cole (very excited about this!)
To give an indication of size, this is in a 4 inch hoop. Even though it's very small it took many hours to complete, it is very fine and detailed work.
This is a really dynamic form of embroidery and I can't wait to do more. I'm pretty pleased with my first attempt!
