Hand Stitching Threads for the Commission

Tonight I selected the cotton embroidery floss that I will use to do the hand stitching on the commission piece.

I love thread and seek out new colors wherever I can find it. I particularly like variegated threads that do not change much in value (dark to light). They used to be easier to find, but like so many supplies for hand work, they are getting more difficult to locate easily.

I will use some or all of these colors for adding details to areas I want to emphasize. Some will be used to move color around the surface to integrate the design.

Tomorrow I begin stitching. It will take several days to complete this step.
