This time I really wonder where this will end. I did a little doodling and had the other eye with kind of a nose which will hopefully transform into something like a fragment of a face. In Sharon's stitch dictionary I found detached buttonhole stitch and want to try it for the cheekbones. There's the vision of a skin like surface in my mind and I want at least to give it a try (though I'm drifting away from just plain buttonhole, but I'm exploring).
Using my window as a light box.
And I'm having fun!
