This Still Hurts
My first attempt at "narrative embroidery," in which I bitch and complain about an old injury. Feels much better now (emotionally, if not physically, damn hand).
I used a couching stitch, in which I tacked down loose loops of thread with stitches rather like tiny railroad ties, to try to replicate my hand writing. Lots of figuring things out as I went.
I think an embroidery hoop would have helped.
