'Cell self-portrait' (stage 2) ...

An idea for enclosing the 'cell' structure within a mesh now begins - first steps detailed below:

Here's the first part of the 'basic' stitching: the individual pieces are simple straight-stitched in place using a variety of wool & cotton threads. The overlays of the fabric are also 'held' in place.

The next stage is adding some metallic thread 'scraps' to the 'empty outer' sections.

These are then overlayed with some pieces of plastic mesh - encroaching into the central area. Again straight stitch is used to just hold them down.

Some coloured wool now outlines an area as well as beginning to form the outer 'mesh'.
