Men of Skyros: Bokhara Man

Although I managed to conquer the darning stitch for the Men of Skyros, using my magnifier, I continued on Bokhara Man, and am pretty happy with him.

Bokhara stitch is very pleasurable to work with. It takes care (so is not an in-front-of-TV affair) but is not a strain on my eyes and keeps me interested. It works on the big areas but also on the smaller ones, like the flower and shoes.

I set the embroidery direction so lines are vertical were he standing up straight with arms by his side, so embroidered his arms and back foot horizontally and the rest vertically.

While I have experimented with at least one other stitch, and will use the intended darning stitch as my mainstay, I am sufficiently pleased with Bokhara at the moment to think I will use it in other places in this project.
