Here it is, all finished...I think.
This was my starting point, a pretty little cottage in our village called The Forge, presumably because it used to be...a forge.
I'm quite liking the straggly, frayey bits of thread. I'm not going to trim them, I don't want the finish to be too neat.
My favourite part is the green railings which I had to wait almost till the end of the piece to do. You can actually see them better in the first photo, before I added the last two hanging baskets.
After the railings, it has to be the little bits of stonework.
I just need to find some way of getting prints made of it now. I need to start taking my work more seriously and making it work for me. But where to start, having prints made, that's a whole new ball game! I still haven't done anything with The Old Sweet Shop. I'm a bit of a control freak so not being able to take control of the printing bit makes me put it off altogether. V naughty.
Hmmm...maybe it just needs a couple more stitches here and there.
Thank you for stopping by and any tips on how to go about getting good quality prints made would be more than welcome.
