How spoilt am I!!

A few years ago,a dear friend was bitten by the stitching bug,and amongst other forms(of stitching) she decided she would try BDE (Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery)
and Stumpwork——

After a while,she decided this was not her “thing”,and I have benefitted.

Today,she came to visit and this is part of what she gave me

To say I’m overwhelmed by her generousity is putting it mildly;
I’ve always loved Stumpwork….(not that I have much to show for my attempts so far)

Hopefully I can produce some worthwhile specimens in the future.

Thank you Gail!

p.s. some time back I blogged photos of three BDE pieces I did for her,I haven’t found them in the archives as yet,but Dec10,2005,shows a Swingle I made her from some kimono fabric she gave me
