I have stitched the last stitch, and Painting The Roses Red will now be put away until I get around to having it framed.
This time it’s flowers, not tea related things. Another pattern (with slight variations) from Erica Kaprow’s Summertime Sampler. All acrylic felt, all hand stitched with only buttonhole and stem stitch. Approximately 13.5″ x 17.5″ and I see another wall hanging in the making. The first picture is a little fuzzy but you get the idea I hope!
I gave myself a week’s respite from the latest stumpwork portrait as I wasn’t happy with the body shaping or the costume but over the weekend I made a hand to wrap around the broom that the lady will hold. The broom was the first thing I made for this latest stumpwork piece and I might finesse it a bit yet.
