Now that I have reached the hand-stitching stage of the home portrait I have slowed down quite a bit. This the meditative, contemplative stage of the design.
After trimming away the excess tulle and dryer sheets, I pulled out my hand-stitching thread options and auditioned them. This is just the beginning of the thread choice process, I frequently change my mind as I get going and the artwork demands something different.
By the end of the week this piece should look quite different!
