TAST palestrina and running stitch

I've got a bit bored with the plain white background so have running stitched over pieces of
yellow muslin, lime grees net and something else, not sure what it is! The funny dark bars are shadows across the table where I was taking the pic. I use running stitch a lot in a kantha-ish kind of way. I liked lacing /whipping / threading it. The circular motif comes up in a point - that happens if you have the stitch tension just that bit tight.

What a great sampler it will be wonderful when we have finished all the TAST stitching.
I love the way you incorporated the sheer fabrics to change the background colour.
