I was recently commissioned to stitch Islington Town Hall. The framed piece was going to be given as a wedding gift.
This one was a little bit different as I didn't have a photograph to work from, so I googled the venue and worked from a few different images. This was one of them:
Here is a little progress pic, all my house and venue portraits are stitched using only freehand machine embroidery:
And this is the final stitch:
I am super proud of it, I was so worried about stitching it but I love the outcome.
This is it all framed up with the names of the recipients and the date of the wedding on the mount. It made a really bespoke gift.
I really love that my work can be a part of someones special day. It's a huge honour to be asked to stitch peoples homes and wedding venues.
