The words have been stitched onto the first body. I have the second to do of course, but I've also decided to add some extra features around the feet, that will need more work. I'm thinking, beetles, maggots, and centipedes at the moment.
I like to try and follow the musculature of the body when I'm stitching which sometimes makes it even more difficult to read as sentences are interrupted, but I never, break the meaning and sentences - if I have to go around something, they just carry on after the break.
That will complete stage 2 - the stitching - and I can get onto the last stage, the painting.
