I decided to keep tabs on the hours making this. It has to be one of the most common questions asked, 'how long did it take', and I never truly know to be honest!
Mind you it doesn't help that I'm a bit of a flitter never really staying with one particular piece in a single stretch.
I had the Wrought Iron rod with ammonite finials made by Colleen Du Pon a Dorset blacksmith.
Isn't it lovely?
I'm quite pleased with how the parts merge.
The bottom part which has had a few airings on Facebook as it's grown.
I am toying with adding a few ammonites to the bottom edge to balance the ironwork at the top. They're only dissolved paper again but visually they add weight.
I will live with them pinned for a while.
Size it is 30 inches long with the fabric 11 inches wide and the hanger 15 inches. In total it 38 hours plus Colleen's time on the ironwork.
