Worthing Pier

The fine tracery of Victorian ironwork in our much loved Worthing Pier lends itself to the lines achieved with thread in free machine embroidery. I have a particular soft spot for the lone walker with his dog down on the shore, which is just suggested with a few strokes. The rocks in the foreground add a textural 3D element worked over soft cotton batting.

The piece is stitched over layers of painted calico, cotton batting silk noil and bandage.
