Hearts stitch journal day 8. Up early due to a power cut that hit as we lay in bed reading, plunging us into blackness. Pitch dark outside and a cold wind from the north. There was no option but to choose jet black thread this morning! The outline is in a lustrous thread by Kreinik but it was impossible to handle, like fine wire, and also I bruised a fingertip this morning with a falling log, so I switched to black rayon for the infill.
I note, in retrospect, that I had had a very bad night’s sleep, which I think may have influenced the fractured pattern.
