Stumpwork Pansy

This is the Pansy from the Country Garden Sampler - my UFO in waiting. I loved this, as it introduced me to Needlelace, but in a stumpwork (ie wired and free-standing) form.


Once I had worked out the needle-lace, I started off doing dragonfly wings that way. In metallic thread with a single bead per wing. There is one on Viv's DYB.

Linda for Viv-dragonfly

Not what I would start on if I was going to learn Needlelace on wire (the metallic thread is messy). But it gives a really nice result.

Your stumpwork is amazing. I am impressed. That pansy is lovely and so is the dragonfly!
