Cloth to Cloth, two

A couple of days ago I started handstitching this woven piece.  It's not very big.  I haven't gotten far but it is beginning to take shape.  Ideally, I'll complete stitching before Jude's C2C3 course begins on November 15th.  A few years ago, I shibori-dyed this kimono silk lining.  The floss is vintage with a nice sheen.  I'm learning that I like to take one stitch at at time (instead of two or three), pulling the thread all the way through, before starting the next stitch.  It takes longer, but it's more enjoyable.

Nice, you have made alot of progress. I like the green thread with the pink fabric.
