Starting Drizzle Stitch on the Next Machine Stitched Page

I had a little time this morning to start on my next machine stitched page. I decided to cover the background with drizzle stitch and then do some organic satin stitch lines in the opposite direction. If you haven't heard of drizzle stitch, it is simply zigzag stitch done in various widths and stitch lengths over top of each other.

 I've started here using a Madeira metallic thread. I will mix in some other shades of blue until the entire page is covered.
I did stiffen the felt with a bit of nylon organza fused to the back. I am working on finishing the edge of the last page but didn't think you would want to be bored by another photo :)

Great thread! It probably looks even better in person, when you can see it catch the light.
