A Little Seahorse
My very great friend Meg has recently introduced me to stumpwork embroidery. I had heard of it before, but I didn't really know what it was. She sent me some photos of some toadstools made by Jan Kerton of Australia, and it set my brain on fire. Now I am obsessed with learning stumpwork. Of course, I will share my journey with you here. Perhaps you might be interested in learning, too! Emily Wilmarth at The Floss Box has some gorgeous embroidery patterns that would be suitable for incorporating some stumpwork elements into and a couple of stumpwork tutorials on her lovely site, so I will probably start there. I can't wait!
