Stumpwork Ornament

It has been a long time since I designed anything in Stumpwork, but the opportunity to teach a short beginner's level class for my EGA chapter got me back into it. This is a 3 inch in diameter flat disc ornament worked in Gloriana silk flosses and pearl cotton on silk Dupioni fabric. The raspberry is padded with felt and has woven bar sepals. The web is worked in a very fine silver metallic thread. The stitches used in this design are chain, closed fly, French knot, buttonhole, satin, straight, herringbone and lazy daisy.
