a stitch in time

I can now add 'suturing' to my CV - having studied these instructions carefully and practised assiduously.
This afternoon I worked on a new piece for the show - walnut ink painted rabbit skin (it is a vintage skin from an old hat factory), eucalypt-dyed silk, printed soluble paper, wire and dupion silk.
The sutures were easily done using linen thread and the forceps from Kind Dog's dissection kit. I see more sutures in my future....
