Continuation of Stump Work Animals with Gillian Darrington February 2013

This month we all arrived with our finished animals and a background which we had made at home. We were all waiting for Gillian to show us how to attach our animal to the background.

We had to seal the edges of the embroidery with PVA glue and then cut it out. Gillian then showed us how to attach it to the background by a slanting stab stitch stuffing it at the same time. As we stitched the animal began to take shape and look more realistic and here they are nearly completed!

Here is Gillian's sample piece below. Thank you to Gillian for a good and productive workshop.
