TAST Challenge running stitch



These are a part of a series of Kantha type embroideries I am doing depicting parts of my life, in these two, motherhood and my shell collecting. I saw a class run my Dorothy Caldwell at Horsham a few years ago and was taken by this style of embroidery. It is an on going series as I think of a new phase im my life!
We have had over 2 inches of rain and everything is wet, muddy glistening and wonderful. Now for a few follow up rains.
The friend I had staying has left, we hadnt really seen each other for ages and had a great few days catching up, talking ponies, looking at ponies and wandering around looking at the sights, I took her to see the Murray Mouth as she lives up the other end of the Murray. A lovely few days, but busy! Our Welsh foal show is tomorrow so that will be pretty busy too.

Spectacular. I love the graphic, "drawn" quality of these. I'd love to see what happened if you interpreted some of your landscapes with this approach...
