I have been dithering... Shall I do this? Shall I do that? Couldn't make up my mind for quite a while. I am talking about the progress on the latest home portrait commission that I have been working on. Which picture should I use? I printed out two versions and made tracings of both. I put ephemera out in different combinations and put it all away. And took it back out again.
And then... it happened.
That was it, I made a commitment and stitched my outlines in white silk thread.
Now I have to decide how to hand stitch it... I think I'll let it rest over the weekend....
