TAST Week Ten Running Stitch



I showed another example of running stitch in a handdyed silk panel a while back, but here's a new one. This is a silk fabric already imprinted with a design, which I'm altering and embellishing (word beloved of stitchers and cqers!) as I go, with various stitches. I just started this one today, but here's a small sample of using running stitch in neon yellow rayon thread, along with other stitches in blue metallic thread.



There will be a lot more done on this area, but this is the start. This piece will be on stretchers 20 x 16, stretched like a painted canvas.

I hate working with metalic thread. it never makes what I want. But you seem not having this problem and your work is very nice.
