The embroidery has been slow lately, which is fine. I'm not in a big hurry and these pieces are interesting to stitch with all of those lines that go nowhere and the squiggles that aren't words.
It's the first time I've stitched on linen (except for cross-stitch which isn't the same thing) and the texture is making me happy. I'm using a single strand of floss to try to keep the lines delicate, also a first.
The hand is the last image I traced, so I'm going to have to pull out my light box soon.
