I enjoy every part of creating these figures -- but I must say that the hand stitchery and embellishment is my very favorite part.
I have a sense looking at this incomplete figure that it is just that - incomplete, wrong somehow. The doubts creep in.
Then I take out needle and thread - bits of this and that - and it becomes whole beneath my finger tips. Ahhh, a deep sigh of satisfaction.
