TAST - Running stitch

I wish it was more exciting...........:(

I started with this scrap of dyed and discharged linen/viscose fabric.

I outlined the shapes in running stitch in variegated perle and stranded cotton. Then I thought it needed more and I decided to stuff the lines with yarn and some of the other areas with wadding, trapunto style.

I didn't think ahead, and I stitched right up to the edge, not leaving myself a margin so that I could use this sample later on.

I wish I hadn't bothered!! Never mind, you can't win 'em all....

Kay Susan, I love this piece. A wonderful use of the running stitch to create texture. A beautiful piece of material, too. Thanks for posting the before picture.
