Thanks for the love guys! Much better than the "mmm that's nice" reaction from the hubby Tongue
You definitely deserve the love.  So much work went into this and it turned out beautifully. 

Too bad husbands don't always get it.  My husband is generally underwhelmed by my work, but then again I don't ooh and ahh when he installs a new sprinkler in the yard either. Wink

really nice work!
This is one of the techniques i haven't tried but would love to!
Was there a certain book or website that you'd recommend?
I feel like this is one of the techniques that's kind of dieing out and it makes me sad, so it makes me happy to see this post and see all the people saying they'd like to give it a try

Thank you KLKing and UrsulaDiamond!

UrsulaDiamond- To learn the techniques, I used a book called Beginner's Guide to Stumpwork, by Kay Dennis. I read a lot of book reviews before settling on buying this book, this one seemed like the one that others liked best. It's pretty good, there are a lot of progress pictures. My only complaint to it is that there really weren't a lot of stitch patterns in it. The other book I use for stitches is Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches. I LOVE this book and highly recommend it. First published in the 1930's, it's now revised and has a plethora of stitches, information and easy to follow diagrams.

Good luck with your stumpwork!! Let me know if I can answer any more questions!  Cheesy
