Pattern beneath the stitches

Deep breath ... here I go!
Thanks to sweet friends who left thoughtful comments on the previous post, I am en-heartened to try!
It may be overly simple [?]... the idea of just rows of all-over stitching. But this is an experiment to see what happens to a bold design when you ignore that it's there for a moment. 
I'm expecting it to soften. But what I don't know is whether it will be lost altogether [?]
Perhaps not, because of the frayed edges.

I couldn't work more on this over the weekend. I spent the rest of it stooped over with a severe migraine. 
Stress about work. 

Yesterday evening, we had some family fun-time with the photobooth application. This one made me think of being held beneath stitches too.

Hi Catherine...I simply adore this experiment.

Hi Catherine! This is beautiful! I love the all over stitching. I can't wait to see how it turns out. I like the way the white thread stitches will change the black a lot.

Thanks Penny, let's see where it takes me???

Thanks Susan! I agree about the way the thread will change the black. How to give life to a black emptiness?... just stitch! It doesn't show in the images but the thread is actually an icey-aqua color.
