Barnard Castle - a stitched sketch

Description

Barnard Castle, perched high above the River Tees, surrounded by woodland, is the subject of this 'post card sized' stitched sketch wall hanging.

This original artwork has been stitched from a photograph taken on a recent visit to County Durham.

The 'canvas' is white cotton fabric, backed by a heavy, non-woven, felt-like material (I think this 'wadding' would have been intended for soft furnishing).To add a little rigidity, two wooden craft sticks have been stitched to the back of the completed embroidery. The hanging has then been backed with a light weight, olive green, cotton fabric which has been folded around the design at the front, and stitched in place to form a 'frame'. A button-hole stitch loop has been securely stitched to the back of the design to form a hanging point. If not required, the loop can be folded behind.

Dimensions:

15.5 cm x 11 cm approx

(Easel not included)

Inspiration

Some lovely walks on a recent trip to County Durham have given me a series of photographs which have inspired recent stitching
