Loose ends . . .

Another sort of kantha stitching, each line of stitches shifted slightly to the side of the one above. And what to do with the loose ends, the bits of thread left over. It's getting a bit obsessional I fear, but I keep all these bits, (generally not shorter than 4" though) and do something with them. Here its running stitch lines. Its the sort of doodling I like.

Hi,

I've not been keeping up with my blog reading lately - and what do I find when I come back? More 'sort of' kantha. I love the life in this chap and the canvas work is gorgeous, though I could be being influenced by the colours you've used! A book cover in the making perhaps?

The kantha stitch is great, but I just love your little running stitch sampler with all your leaftovers what a great idea!

Maybe your odd ends could be snipped up, a bit of bondaweb and a shear fabric into one of your postcards?

The running stitch sampler is such an interesting idea - really makes you think about the interactions of colour!

The way your stitches are done on the fish are very much like bargello, don't you think?
