I added straight stitches today in a variegated light blue perle cotton thread running along curvy diagonal lines (5 of them). You may have to look hard to see them in the photo. Has the image changed for you now, or do you still see the same thing as before? For me, it is coming to life more. This latest stitching has given it more movement. Here is another link to a very detailed site of many embroidery stitches and tutorials on how to do them. http://www.embroidery.rocksea.org/reference/picture-dictionary/ People are so generous to take the time to create these sites aren't they? Please take time to add comments or questions. Thanks.
