I love to buy kits and learn new techniques.  Here's an example of a technique I just learned from a Lori Birmingham kit.  The technique's been around for centuries and is called stump work.  If you can do basic embroidery, you can do this. 



The leaves and petals were crafted using the buttonhole stitch over shaped wire and the satin stitch to fill in the center.  The rest was just cross stitch, herringbone stitch done with gold braid, some handwrapped cording and a home-made tassel.  Easy-peasy stuff for striking results.

Hope you enjoy

That is pretty awesome! I need to look more into it because it sure doesn't look "easy peasy" as you say. Smiley
