Cottage Embroidery

This is my first try at stumpwork. I've made tiny little stuffed muslin shapes of birds and sewn them down onto the fabric ground. I'm embroidering over them with chain stitches. It makes the shapes stand up and gives it a three dimensional effect.
This one is not finished but you can see some finished Hand Embroidery at  My Good Babushka. Hand Embroidery, Painting, Chainmaille Jewelry
