Concentration while stitching is essential in order to get the desired result. The embroidery is always exciting because I'm never completely certain of how it will turn out. This is a process of adding stitches and removing them, adding fabrics, cutting fabrics, and so on. This creates a worked-through image in which, for the viewer with attention to detail, the journey is often still visible.
