I didn't know what it was, and had to look it up. I am amazed at all the other talents, hobbies, and interests that so many cuties have besides embroidery. Kind of makes me feel a little lazy! Stump work looks to be very time consuming but beautiful.
This is stump work on the embroidery machine so should not take much more time than any other embroidery designs.
Ok. I looked it up too
Is this what you are trying to digitize?
Yes that sort of things.
I have no clue what stump work is. When I looked it up it just described it as raised embroidery and I don't understand how it is different from padded embroidery. So, what do you do with the wire? I'd love to see your embroidery after you figure it all out!
Apparently you can make embroidery like a Ith appliqué and you put wire in the edges to make flowers, butterflies etc which are like FSL . I am looking to make some brooches but it is all new to me as well so lots of experimenting.
