I've had a lovely day, sitting in the classroom, trying new stitching techniques. Mostly based on running stitch, with variations. Sue Stone is the teacher, she has her samples laid out on the table. We all gathered round and listened to her instructions on Raw Edge Applique, Wrapping and Looping, and Folds and Undulations.
Here are some close ups of Sue's samplers. There are lots of different ways a running stitch can be used. Other stitches can be added to give the piece texture.
Sue is a very talented lady, you can check out her web site here.
