This is a class from Tricia Nguyen that I took this year in Williamsburg. I've included two close ups. . . and more detailed photo are on my blog stitchingwithkittens.blogspot.com

beautiful. I live in Virginia Beach, did you take the class in Wmsburg Virginig? Where? I didn't know there were classes around the area.
Thank you all for your very kind words. I really appreciate the encouragement! As some of you have already discussed, the "how to" of this piece really centers on the special threads that the designer has had made for this and other of her pieces. For those of you who are wishing you could take one of Tricia's classes, I know that she is planning on offering an extended on-line stumpwork class that will allow students to stitch either a casket or mirror surround. . . but not for a year or two yet. So save your pennies. (Sadly, these historically accurate threads are wicked expensive.)
I've been following this on your blog with great interest. I am totally fascinated by this and the mermaids grotto. I hope that Tricia will teach these in the UK one day, or perhaps through her on-line classes.
You did a great job and I think your kitty is a very fine follow!
