Hadrian's Wall

I’ve recently finished this piece, but it has a history of over a year. I started it when I was asked to do a demonstration of free machine stitching at a local library. I backed a piece of calico with felt and worked to a photo I had taken from Hadrian’s Wall.
Although I persevered with it I didn’t really like it. Somehow, right at the end, it came together. I have a love hate relationship with Bullion Knots, always trying to conquer them, and then the one line, the green gimp in the second picture seemed to make all the difference. Sometimes it just pays to put something aside and keep thinking about how to make it work.
