Jan Kerton is an amazing Australian woman who specializes in stump work embroidery.  Her website features examples of her own work, a basic embroidery stitch guide, and kits for sale.  I’ve really enjoyed reading her blog and seeing some of her personal projects and her design process.

In case you didn’t know – stump work is a kind of 3-dimensional embroidery that is stuffed with bating or worked over wires. It’s a style I’ve been exploring in my own work and something I’ve been researching for some time.  If you’re interested in learning more about stump work, this website has some terrific resources.
