I feel so much better having something to focus on, stitching was what was needed. I'm not stitching in an embroidery kind of way but using my needle to make marks and to try and inject some dynamic into this very static and geometric layout I've made.
It looks completely different with the hand-stitching. I am going to add some beading once I have machined all the black areas
It's quite a big piece (as usual) 20"x 30" so it will keep me busy over the next few days.
