hand embroidery

recently i have got back into hand embroidery as i can do this while i am resting up and watching a movie.
Of course i like candle wick stitches for their bold outlines as well as the fine lines that floss gives.
i am trying some of the dimensional stitches and having fun with that as well.
Learning new things certainly helps me cope with this illness, as well as having fun.
