The initial inspiration for this piece was seeing Romanji, my little black cat, silhouetted against a window with stained glass privacy film. Romanji is black with the occasional white hair peeking through.
I liked the idea that he cat should not be totally black, and added a variegated black-to-grey fiber into the flat DMC black thread to get this effect.
Prayer: Father, thank You for the gift of free will. Help me to make choices that bring me further into the light, and turn away from the dark.
