I have been away, doing the airport shuffle with my mum and haven't posted for a bit, but I have been working.
I have gotten my study schedule worked out, and have been doing some thread painting.
I recently got two books by Alison Holt and have been studying them, even started one of her projects
I have bought a few small frames and one gave me the idea to do a stumpwork dragonfly.
This is the background for the piece. It is only 2x3"
I will embroider the lines with gold and wire the edges with same.
The first is a design by Richard Box from a really old copy of Needlecraft magazine (out of print) aug 1994. You can also see him working here.

And, I have set up a sample for the first two layers and lace of my large walhanging
Hopefully I will get some work done tomorrow when the DH is at work
