I'm self taught. I used Jane Nicholas's books primarily (which are admitedly somewhat difficult to work out because the project layout it a bit weird) and did a few smaller things out of Inspirations magazine. A couple of years ago I did some short (30min) stumpwork courses at the Stitches & Craft Show in London, but by then I'd already been doing it a while.

I too checked it out in my library last summer and thought it a little too 'traditional' and complicated for someone like me jumping back into needlework after a loooonnnng break.

But I'm with curegreed...this may tempt me to try it.  Your work is awesome and the 3-D just opens a whole world of possibilities!! 

I may be way off base with this observation, but this brings emroidery kissing close to quilting, doesn't it?

Last question....did you use traditional batting for the heart?
