Slow cloth or normal embroidery?

Forced to be 'in' today (owing to carpet' cleaners' visit) I have had a spell of stitching... Interesting that the word 'spell' is used in conjunction with the act of stitching for I have always imagined myself as a bit of a witch.
I am adding a very electric orange glow to the very edge of this silk worm using tiny couching stitches.
The result is much as I had wished but this side is easy, it is the cut edge that will give me a headache. Only 15 more feet to go.

YUM the time for the technique is WORTH the effort though--i did this on Brain Pan over wire and thought i'd have to shoot myself--you will love yourself when done :)

Yes, I am actually finding it a soothing procedure. An island of calm in my otherwise worrisome life. I can see why embroidery is so suitable for those with mental health problems and inmates of institutions such as prisons. And Mothers!
