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!
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!
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!
