I love wrought iron and have been taking photos for years whenever I see some interesting samples. This photo on the left was taken was taken at the Victoria and Albert Museum where they have some wonderful samples.
I have used this image to create a new design that may be stitched one day! Now I wonder what technique would suit it? The background could probably use strips of fabric, silk maybe? Applied to calico using bondaweb, then I might applique cut shapes from the design and free machine stitch them into place and use the sewing machine to thread paint to blend it all in and then finish with more stitching in black. Now all I need is to make time to do it instead of spending hours creating more designs for my portfolio of "To be stitched One Day Images".
