Anchoring The Wings...

Brynwood Needleworks - Attaching Armature To Wing Parts
I'm nearly finished attaching the armature to the left wing parts. Once I finished covering the wires, I had to stitch them down as the first step to preparing to fill in with silk threads. 
I only have to complete about an inch of anchor stitching on the top wing part on the right side (above) that I didn't get done last night. I'll do that this morning, and then I can begin the next steps. 

My goal is to complete my butterfly by the end of February. I do have orders to make and ship, and a few other projects on my agenda (including sending off our tax documents to our accountant), but I'm on a roll now, so I think I can do it. In fact, I may even get it finished early, if I put my nose to the grindstone! Let's see.

Stitching Again...

Brynwood Needleworks - Butterfly Armature
I'm pretty sure you haven't been sitting on the edge of your seat, waiting for me to start stitching again. Nevertheless, I thought I'd let you know that I've begun work on the second set of wings for my stumpwork butterfly.

The first step is to create the wing armature, covering the parts with black silk. It took a while, but as I write this, I've completed doing them.

Today, I'll start my stitching to secure these parts to my ground fabric. Once that's complete, I'll begin the part I enjoy the most (so far)...the embroidery. Don't you think that's a lovely way to spend my Friday? Yes. I couldn't agree more.
