Slowly but surely I'm working on what will be my final piece for my stumpwork course assessment.
Although it's a lot of work I am getting so much out of this project.
I never really imagined using so many varied techniques and materials in one piece before and am feeling like I have just received my embroidery licence and can do what I want for the first time!
Although it's primarily a stumpwork project I'm incorporating silk ribbon embroidery, beading and surface embroidery. Although I drew a detailed design I find myself deviating from that by experimenting and just "winging it". I can't wait to see the end product, it's really exciting.
