Cutting out the stumpwork

I have been cutting out all the stumpwork pieces. Each piece has to be cut close to the buttonhole stitch so there are no fabric whiskers showing. I use my Hardanger scissors and cut very slowly and carefully as close to the edge as I can. Here are all the components ready to attach to the piece.

Beautiful stitching!! You have incredible patience. I'm going to hate seeing this one come to an end - like a good book you want to keep going. Please do another one, or even a piece of Hardanger.

Hi Pat,

Just beautiful!

Okay, I'm ready to see them attached!

Don't you just love it when it is time attach all these little pieces and see how pretty the end result is.

I love stumpwork a lot.
