Kantha Stitching

Today was spent stitching with Daughter of Dowling group of ladies whereby we all worked with Kantha Stitch (or running stitch as it is often referred to).

My piece is hand-stitched on 4 layers of cheesecloth, so it feels beautifully soft to touch.   Experimenting with imagery I decided to include knots to give extra texture.   Used my hand-dyed thread to give colour change.

I am feeling a little hooked on Kantha Stitch.  The meditative feeling it gives while stitching is so relaxing.    A bonus!
