A truly lovely example of STUMPWORK today. Some of you but likely not all will know that I am a big fan of stumpwork. I am currently planning a new crazy quilt which will have lots of stumpwork.
Natalie sent me photos of some of her experiments using my Very Velvet Petite. Yes, my Very Velvet Petite is coming so make sure you sign up for my newsletter. Natalie is a designer residing in Slovakia. Her bug is very small measuring about 2cm without the legs and she has used my Very Velvet Petite in blue variations. She plans on using this in a larger project in the future and once completed she will be sharing photos.
She tells me she used a counting technique for her bug on 35 count linen. Her preference is 25 count and sometimes 27 and 28 depending on the project. She has plans to make some larger bugs with beads and crystals as well. Natalie is part of a group on a social Russian network where she sells her patterns. Sadly, they are not translated into English but you can view her talent HERE.
She also has a Facebook page featuring various albums HERE.
Thank you Natalie.
