Perfect Skin

Last night it was time to start working on Luna herself since the background is almost done.  (The final touch there has to wait until the rest of the canvas is finished.)  When I stitch people, I like to start with their faces but for Luna, I started with her decollete, then worked on her right arm (our right, not hers), stopping at the wrist.  I'm not quite sure whether I will pad her fingers or use bullions there so I am thinking that over while I stitch away on skin.  I hope to finish her other arm, her neck and then her face tonight.  I'm doing basketweave for these areas and the most important thing is to keep my stitches very smooth and even.  That takes time and some concentration.  Those all basketweave pieces are harder than they look!
