A Tulip Study is Finished!

Here it is! I finished cutting out all the leaves and attached them. I also removed the leaf from the First Kiss and redid it. It just did not look right to me, so I messed with it a little more, and got a more natural look, I think. When DH looked at the finished piece, he said "but they are sticking out, is that right?" LOL Anyway, I will mount the piece on batting and the foam core tomorrow and take it to the framer on Tuesday. I will post a photo of the framed piece when it returns.

My thanks to Karthryn Drummond of Gingerbread Girl designs for her permission to blog stitch this piece, and, for providing a piece of Coton Retors Mat for the stems. This was a fun piece to stitch and her instructions were wonderful. Good luck with the new shop, Kathyrn and future designs!

Pierette and Cynthia are right--this is beautiful! Congratulations on finishing it. Will it go in a shadow box frame so your DH won't try to mash the flowers down? LOL

Thanks a lot for doing stumpwork where us novices can see it step-by-step. That was very helpful for me, at least.

Another beautiful heirloom! This was a treat to watch unfold. Interesting - but I would never have the patience to do it.

a work of art....and i don't say that often ...

Thanks, ladies! It will be a deep frame so the stumpwork is not scrunched, and it will have glass so I don't have to worry about dust! Which should leave me more time to stitch!!

That is really pretty and the deep box frames are just perfect for stumpwork
