Stumpwork - My assessment piece finally finished

Well after months of work and procrastinating, I have finally finished this piece. With encouragement from Barbara, it's now complete, thanks Barb.
Close up shots, first of her hat
And her wind swept hair
In the coming days I will put up a tutorial as to how she was put together.
Part 1 Inspiration
Part 2 Tree and Background
Part 3 will be the under layers of my lady.
Part 4 adding dress, head, hair
Part 5 hat
Part 6 finishing touches

My goodness how clever - I can almost feel the breeze in my hair.. I love the hemline of her dress the way it splays out as she swings... You must have infinite patience... Thankyou for sharing her with us...

Lovely,...love the hat blowing in the tree. As a realtive newbie,I need to know what Stumpwork, other than 3-D embroidery and embellishment which it seems to be from the photos I have seen. Any help there?

Diane said...

Arlene, she's wonderful! I did one hand for Gerry's stumpwork block and I thought that was a lot of work. The tree and the hat are perfect too.
