Hand stitching takes a long time. It can be slow meditative time, engrossed in a conversation time, or listening to music/book time. All of the above were in this stitching time.
I have come to resting point now. Let the piece rest, gaze upon it and decide if it needs more stitching, how much more stitching and what kind of more stitching.
I thought I'd share a few close up of of the current stitching on this home portrait

I'll get back with more pictures after I mull it over...
