The Ironbridge spans the beautiful Severn Gorge in Shropshire and is visited by thousands of people every year. It was built by Abraham Darby in 1779 and is such an iconic structure that it is sometimes called the Stonehenge of the Industrial Revolution. This picture is based on the autumn colours of November 2006. It is about 18" by 10" and uses 39 colours on 14 count parchment aida. The design uses whole cross stitch with some backstitch and long stitch for the detail on the railings.

Eley's Bicycle is a feature of Tontine Hill in Ironbridge, opposite the famous bridge itself. It used to be the  the delivery bicycle for Eley's of Ironbridge, probably the best pork pie shop in the world, but has now retired to its place on the pavement outside the shop. The petunias, apart from being very pretty, were planted to discourage late night revellers from trying to ride the bicycle down the hill. The design is about 9" x 7" on white 14 count aida and uses 22 colours. There is some backstitch to draw the spokes on the wheels but otherwise is all in whole crossstitch. It is illustrated in a standard 10" x 8" frame (not included).

These views can be seen from the single track road bridge over the Severn in Melverley .

This view looks northwest towards the confluence of the Rivers Severn and Vyrnwy,

This view looks south towards the houses of Coedway and Crewe Green.

The subtle shading is easily achieved by blending colours in the needle, simply use 1 strand of each of the named colours for the symbol and thread them in the needle together. The plain colours use 2 strands of the same colour together as usual. The Views both have a design area of about 7 1/2 " by 2" on 16 count blockweave fabric. They use 23 and 27 colours and blends. The threads are sorted onto organisers for you with plenty of space for you to keep your blended threads tidy. The designs are worked in whole stitches only.
