I just received my final piece for my stumpwork assessment back from the framer. Having never had anything framed before it was quite a thrill! I'm glad I chose the more expensive frame as it's so beautiful and the floral theme ties in with my piece beautifully.
I've used a variety of techniques in the piece including my favourite - silk ribbon embroidery.
I can't tell you how much thought, planning, then work went into this but I absolutely love it.
And another homework assessment finished and mounted. This is a blue morpho butterfly.
The wings are all detached and the body embroidered directly onto the fabric.
So now I just need to finish and assemble my samplers and I'm ready for my assessment in a few weeks, how exciting to have come so far! I'm already planning what to learn next and I feel it must involve silk ribbons!
