WIP: Inter-Stellar Hand Embroidery

The cotton backing was attached to the 9-patch, which is really an 8-patch square, technically speaking.  I used the invisible glue method as shown by Jude Hill.  Since it was difficult to photograph those teensy tiny stitches from the front view, I am showing you the back instead.  The idea is to bind the two pieces with only small dots of thread showing on the front.  In theory, it’s great; but when I become impatient with the process, my dots are really visible as running stitches.  But no worries, this is just the background for what will become a heavily-stitched work of art.

Ahem. Still working on the hand.img_3409
