Moving on. DH did indeed have someting else plugged in the scanner port...but kindly fixed that for me and I got a few scans done.
Wrought iron has alway intrigued me...if there is any one trade I'd love to learn it's that...but at this point in my life I can't see that happening...so I will be content to stitch it instead.
To begin with, I created an ornate trellis on the back side of the Drag Bag, only to realize that it looked like a sore thumb...so decided to tie it in to a larger picture. At the bottom edge you'll see some scallops. These continue around the top edge of the bottom darker section...and the front has a large scrolled section...with two smaller panels on the side seams (all of which are still works in progress...or were...before I had to set the project on the back burner). The trellis is situated between the two pockets.
Decided to cover the back trellis in a climbing rose vine. There's three yards of ribbon in them roses...and nearly as much in the leaves. I like it...and planning on doing more of them on the others...maybe mixed with some other flora.
