Here is the updated photo.  My gerbera is almost complete, it just requires me to make the stumpwork leaf.  However it is on hold as I really need to finish off my work for the blues competition.  You can see a little of the gift box (more a cone) in the background. 
All the best for whatever you are working on!

Stumpwork

This is only one of the flower layers!
I have set myself the challenge of stitching two petals a day to enable myself to be on schedule when the tutor returns (in two weeks) for the second part of the class I attended last Saturday.  Stump work is very time consuming I have decided.  Stitching over thin wire with one strand of thread is certainly fine work.  Here is a picture of my progress so far!  I will endeavour to keep you updated.  By the way at the moment I am one petal ahead! Yay!

Tomorrow brings

me attending a local embroidery class.

I am really looking forward to going as I am in the mood for stitching right now! Darn it though - I cut the tip of my middle finger on a piece of glass two days ago so I guess I should wear a thimble on it.

We are all making little box things with stumpwork flowers on the front.  Mine is going to be an orange gerbera.  Here is a picture of my bits n bobs gathered together in prep for tomorrow. 

Wish me luck!




Also today I have a quick snap showing an update of my blues!
