Return of the Little Sister in silk

Little Sister returns from the Isle of Man in the wee hours of tomorrow morning. Today  I decided to interpret a drawing I'd done of her some months ago in beads and silk ... not sure how it will turn out and I'm trying to remember Ankie's advice that "less is more" ... this is possibly the first of a few efforts  to see how the interpretation evolves.   First step was to scan the original drawing, then stitch it (threadless) over the silk and that provided a clue about where to stitch ... the beading is something that seems to be "happening" in no pre-ordained way ... so will put it away until the order or beading thread arrives later this week from Lisa @ Dyed and Gone to Heaven.  Much learning inthe doing.
