October 2023 Stitch-a-long: Stumpwork Ghosts

For our October 2023 stitch-a-long on Facebook we have a boo-tiful tutorial for making stumpwork ghosts by stitch-a-long admin Dianne Stauber, from our Fort Worth Chapter in Texas.

Here’s more about this month’s project from Dianne:

Let’s make some stumpwork ghosts, y’all!

Five years ago, when I first joined EGA, my first love was (and always will be) cross stitch. It will always be my go-to project when I want peace and mindfulness. However, once I started making friends in my chapter and going to meetings and seeing the OTHER types of needlework my new stitchy friends were working on…I fell down the best rabbit hole ever. Stumpwork was one of the first types of needlework to really get my attention, but I couldn’t even conceive how it was possible to embroider a 3D butterfly (for example) with bendable wings. Incredible! In the spirit of my EGA newbie heart from five years ago, I created this tutorial for cute little stumpwork ghosts. (And also because my friend and fellow chapter member Garrett has always want to try it…and they inspire me to do all the things, including writing this!)
