Wow this is incredible!
Wow, such a gorgeous stumpwork portrait!
I love it!
You are brilliant, a fantastic birthday card.
Its a fabulous stumpwork. Lucky recipient.
Wouldn't you like to have a private gardener, with a tie?
The shirt was the trickest part to make. Apart from the collar which was made seperately, it is one piece of cloth and had to be folded and tucked into a shirt with sleeves, cuffs and front.
He's quite charming, don't you think?
Thank you, I am sure the 'gardener' (the birthday boy) liked it.
It was a challenge to make a male face but great fun, too.
It IS fantastic. I hope you make more portraits. This handsome fellow looks like he really enjoys his garden, especially carrots. Snappy dresser too.
I bet your birthday boy was blown away. Fantastic.
Your stumpwork is so wonderful! And I can imagine the delight on the recipient's face. (I remember mine). Love those carrots!!
In my childhood, a long time ago, there were gardeners and carpenters who wore dress shirts and ties under their overall or work apron.I wanted to recreate that look.
I haven't heard from him yet, but then he's a snail mail sort of guy, being 90 years old.
Thank you Tanya. The carrots were fun to make. I wanted to add more true embroidery, but it is much easier on a portrait of a lady, to add embroidery stitches on the clothing or jewellery.
