It's actually really easy - there is only four seperate stitches: blanket stitch for the large blue flames; satin stitch for the solid blue flames, cross stitch for the heart and the purple flames are in needlelace (which is pretty much a detached buttonhole stitch).

You crack me up!

Of course, that's a bit like a Ninja saying "being a ninja is easy, you just jump out of the shadows and kill people without making a sound"...  Grin

Love this!  I've always enjoyed the little bit that I puttered around in stumpwork but I was traditional and now I feel sort of lame....

And can I just say I'm enjoying the ninja comments?  Whenever I manage to pull something off at work, my staff asks me how and I tell them it's because I'm ninja awesome.  Wink

I love this. I discovered stumpwork in a book in my old college a couple of years ago and decided I wanted to give it a go.

This has not happened yet. This may have given me the kick up the arse I need. I know you've said it's easy but do you think it's something one can teach themselves?

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.
