A red thread. 赤い糸

This is a third stage of the picture. I made another plate for a thread to add on the print. So I have two plates for one image. I was working on the scissors' shadow, it's very subtle, perhaps too subtle to make out. And I'm going to change the color of the thread which must be a deeper red.
I hope I'll finish working on the print before the end of the month.
先週から引き続きこの作品の製作をしてます。今週、もう一枚赤い糸用の板を製作し,2枚の板を重ね
刷りしてみました。そして、テーブルの上のハサミの影を少しソフトにしたんですが、ほとんど違いが分からないかもしれませんね。赤い糸はもっと深みがある赤にしようと思ってます。今月中に出来上がるといいなと思っているんですが、版画は絵画や彫刻と違って思うようにならないので、どうでしょう。

Great additions, I think the shadow works well and isn't too subtle. The red thread pulls it all thogether (or does it tie it together? bad pun) I would like to see the deeper red.
