I have been EXTREMELY busy recently with other things than embroidery. So I did not think I would have much time to stitch yesterday, July 30th, World Embroidery Day. However, I was fortunate!
I had prepared these items for a stumpwork portrait and I thought I would be able to get started on it at any rate, even if I did not finish until much later.
Then by sheer luck a two-hour-assignment was cancelled and I found myself with enough time to finish the whole portrait. I even mounted it on a piece of cardboard and slipped it into a window card, ready to be sent off to someone's birthday!
I must admit, however, that there aren't a lot of true embroidery stitches on these stumpwork ladies! They are more appliqué than embroidery.
Did you have a good day of embroidery? Did you stitch with others? Will the world have more enthusiastic needleworkers next year?
