Day 100 – Stumpwork Legs and the Full Picture September 28th, 2006

Stumpwork Legs
When I showed this sampler to my sister before she looked at anything else she lifted the skirt and said “yep, they’re thin enough”, as if it couldn’t be a self portrait if I had made fat legs lol.

I made the legs with a pipe cleaner, I threaded it into a piece of tubular knitted floss to look like black stockings and I made the boots from scraps of soft Leather.

In this detail you can also see how I have hemmed the skirt and stitched it to the background down the sides…

I got the crinkles in the skirt by wetting the fabric, twisting it tightly and letting it dry before untwisting it…The little black top is Needlelace.

And here is the completed Sampler…I have sized the image to be the exact size of the Sampler.

The Stumpwork Sampler

And that is the 100th detail in the 100 days and with it I would like to send up 3 Cheers for Sharon and her wonderful ideas…Hiphip Hooray, Hiphip Hooray, Hiphip Hooray Thank you Sharon.

And thank you to everyone that has been a part of the 100 days…everybodies participation and enthusiasm has been wonderfull.

And stay tuned for detail 101 because from me the details haven’t finished…they may not be every day as the first one hundred have been but I still have a lot of work left to document.
