More stitching on old paper

Following on with the possible new project -
Variations of stitch and threads. Linen threads, cotton threads, silk threads ... and the stitching is whatever comes to mind - a sort of twining, double rows of running stitch, and best of all so far, putting twist into the thread and leaving the loops over the lettering, or on the plain paper.

I'm not happy with the combination of papers but that's not to say that a different combination might not work better.

Next step is to stitch into the plain paper on the left, restoring the shape of the page and seeing how those threads behave on a different support.

Hours of harmless fun lie ahead.
