Thread of Thought is an original embroidery made with cotton fibers stitched onto a black cotton fabric. The fabric was first bleached in the shape of a skull to give it a realistic bone color after which a raised satin stitch was used to shape the cerebrum and bullion knots formed the cerebellum. Last, a whipped backstitch was used for the skull bone outlines.
