X represents a word for Lucy to decipher

Each stitch plays back and forth

Each player a woman, sits at a chess table wondering how to protect her queen

Stitches in pink represent different pathways to choose from

Intersecting at a center, the center where all emotions tangle and unfold

If she met him here, it would mean to dismantle existing walls, it would mean to exit the game

All players in, all players out, all players blindfolded, all players in mazes of paintings, all players with no names only the ones with letters embroidered xx
