Australian wildflowers were celebrated in stumpwork over one hundred years ago, but only relatively recently has this unique style of embroidery been revived.

Annette Hinde presents a new, up-to-date approach to stumpwork, employing exciting, vibrant color and a fresh look at many of the techniques, matched with a keen sense of composition and the occasional touch of whimsy.

Full instructions are given here for nine different wildflowers (and several insects), which can be embroidered either as individual pictures or in several projects combining the various flowers - Two different types of wattle, gum blossoms and gumnuts, bottlebrush, waratah, flannel flower, native bluebells, tea-tree, maidenhair fern; a spider and its web, butterfly and caterpillar.
