This is a piece that combines two techniques that were new to me; stumpwork with metal thread work. It is based on diagrams taken from a book on heraldry. I used a variety of metallic fabrics, 'goldwork' threads, metallic seedbeads and snippets of sari silk. The two figures were worked on backing fabric, cut out and applied to natural linen as 'slips'. I still haven't decided what to do with it next.
