Addicted to stitching

A few days ago, I was speaking to a publicist about the Ultimo Science Festival exhibition and she asked how the Kingdom of the Blind project got started. I've explained before how Adam and I met through a common interest in astronomy, and discovered another common interest in the beautiful imagery of science.

The image above is the first one that Adam showed me, of his work studying addiction in rats. Although it's been a long time coming to fruition, I've finally started the embroidery based on this image: the first step has been to hand-dye some stranded embroidery cotton, then start covering the background in feather stitch to mimic the feathery tendrils of the neurons in this image.
