What advice would you give someone starting this project? Just let your imagination run wild -- there are no mistakes with this technique. Although it is somewhat tedious to stitch out a "Stitch Bible" -- I stitched out 560+ stitches and didn't even stitch them all out -- it is really worth the effort. I would suggest using different threads -- I used a different thread for each page.

Love the way you've changed the size of the stitches in the piece

Lovely. I;ve never seen material like that. Is it batik? The stitches really give it an underwater look.

Thanks. It is a batik -- I believe it's a hand-dyed piece I bought at a quilt show.
