Get Better Soon Card

Someone close to me needed hospitalisation and nursing care. I made this stump work portrait to wish for a speedy recovery.
The white uniform and cap are made from scraps of an authentic white medical coat. The material is so compactly woven it was hard for the needle to pierce the fabric, and stitching was a pain in the neck fingers. Now my poor fingers need nursing care!

This is wonderful Queenie! You have such wonderful ideas, and are so clever with your needle. You must have put smiles on faces of patients and staff who saw your card!

This is so dear, Carin. It will help! I know about such fabrics ... they are real hard!

Oh Queenie, what a lovely card for the person who needs hospitalisation. I am sure this card helps her to recover a good health very quickly.
Wishing you a nice week,
Isa

How perfect!

I hope the nurse is not a strict one, but caring and kind!

Queeniepatch said...

You need a doctor if you are to hand stitch a medical coat (I had to shorten the sleeves) and will NEVER do it again by hand!!!

Queeniepatch said...

Thanks for your kind words. I will, in the near future, I hope, do a tutorial of stumpwork portraits.

Queeniepatch said...

I hope she is gentle and caring and has a cupboard full of medication!
You, too, have a good week.

Queeniepatch said...

I hope she can give perfect care, too!

Annet said...

Wow, this is a gorgeous nurse!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, let's hope the nurse can not only cheer up the patient but cure serious illnesses, too.

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, let's pray the good nurse has great powers of healing.

Queeniepatch said...

Thank you!

So wonderfully created!

I love your stump work and I'm sure your friend feels better for receiving it.

Queeniepatch said...

Many thanks!

Queeniepatch said...

Yes, I hope the nurse will put a smile on her face and the positive energy will help the recovery process.

Your friend will be so grateful of your wonderful card, the nurse has such a cheeky smile.

Queeniepatch said...

Maybe the nurse has a thick needle up her sleeve, or a bottle of horrid cod liver oil!

I'm sure your friend will recover all the faster, having seen this dedicated nurse.
Miss Nurse no doubt will influence other patients to smile and get better while she is on show in the hospital.

Queeniepatch said...

Let us hope she is a fair nurse and comes to the aid of anyone in need!

Tanya said...

I love your stump figures so much! I so want to try this! Impossible by Internet or books?

Queeniepatch said...

Hang in there, Tanya, and I WILL post a tutorial on stumpwork portraits! I will also try to hunt down other information so there will be a lot to choose from.

Your stump work portraits absolutely amaze me. It may have been a pain to make, but it is a treasure. Hope your friend is feeling well soon.
