I got a subscription for the embroidery magazine Inspiration which has been arriving regularly and includes lovely tutorials with fold out patterns. Very challenging, I am making plans for a few. I ordered this incredible stump work book they are promoting, Botanica by Julie Kniedl and am so excited to receive it.


There is an utterly realistic pear I absolutely must attempt. For what I haven't any clue, "just because" will have to be reason enough Cheesy.  

Has anybody got other stump work resources to recommend? I've checked out all the books the library has to offer and a friend recently gave me a copy of Raised Embroidery by Barbara and Roy Hirst that is just wonderful. The projects are so quirky and delightful, I am entranced. Of course I've read some books by Jane Nicholas' that are incredible but a bit more traditional than the Hirst volume. I like weird, lol.

Ooh I'm curious to see what you create CLM! All my stuff has been sourced from the internet or I just made it up.  Roll Eyes

You make such groovy things!
The Hirst projects use needle lace for figures & clothing, it is really cool. I've been wanting to make an automata & am wondering if stumpwork can be incorporated. I have ideas! I also found a plaque blank in my stash & remembered how neat-o your faux taxidermy is. More ideas... so exciting Grin
