Stitching While recovering From Surgery

I have taken one of my gyotaku fish prints and begun to sitche over the body with very fine silver thread - it is awful to work with but gives the fish a glow without covering over the underprinting. I have attached the fish to black felt and the lower belly is small disconnected chain stitch while the upper part is larger disconnected fly stitch. I have started to use long thin threads of charcoal on the fin to delineate the shape and I will do the same on the tail and the bottom fin. At least it gives me something to work on while I ait with this damn catheter still attached.
