Stitching the Frame

I’ve stitched the mid and foreground sidewalk and street.  This involved a lot of circular stitching.  I like to use variegated threads for this kind of stitching because they blend easily and create variation on the surface.  

After that I started stitching the bike frame.  This takes a bit more attention.  I chose 10 threads total that range from very light to very dark,  I put down the middle value thread first and then worked to the lightest thread.  Now, I need to go back and put down the darker threads, and do some fine tuning.  A key factor will be breaking up the highlights and the accents so that they come and go.
