Back to 'Drawing Hands' by MC Escher.
Finished the bottom left hand page, started the second page of the middle row.
The black grid threads were bleeding onto the white, so I pulled them all out and washed it. I think the lines that still show will disappear once I stitch over them.
This is never going to be my favorite Escher to stitch, so much white to stitch and it's just not as detailed.
I'll have to figure how to put some of the grid lines back. It's so much easier to stitch with the grid. I used black quilting thread before, the weight of the thread works nicely, and it hadn't bled on the other three that I'd stitched. Maybe ecru or a natural quilt thread if I have some.
