Stumpwork February 16th, 2005

Tonight I learnt how to put a portrait in the side bar of my blog and have chosen a Self Portrait to show you….It is part of a Stumpwork sampler…below is the full self portrait which I did after learning how to do the stumpwork hands in ‘Raised Embroidery’ by Barbara and Ray Hirst. The needle is the eye end cut from a size 12 quilting needle, the skirt is the same fabric as one I wear, I used needlelace to make the little black top to go with it and the hair is stitched from strands of my own hair…. You can see the full sampler, which measures 12cm x34cm (5″x 13″) on my website Crazy Quilt Studio.
