I took a workshop in Stump -Work which is a 3 dimensional embroidery.These are the 2 pieces I finished. I just need to have them stretched and framed.. I loved the journey making these but it can be a bit hard on the eyes!
The leaves are done on a wire as are the petals.. The bee is fuzzy and raised and the berries are done on a large pony bead. Here is a fabulous link featuring Jane Nicholas' work . It shows a lot of the techniques. I have 2 of her books.....Fabulous!

I really enjoyed making and beading these wee fairy shoes.The shoes are
made from cream colored Ultrasuede and lined(fairy feet are very delicate you know!)
Sequins,glass beads and mini pearls make them special. They will be worn by one of my fairy dolls which is in the making.The shoes are 3" long.....Can you imagine a fairy doing the "Light Fantastics"wearing them! ;-}
