Pulled Thread #7 - Running Stitch

7. Running Stitch Filling

The Pulled Mosaic stitch, posted last Sunday, has a heavy appearance and was not the easiest for me to stitch;  I had a hard time idenitfying which hole to stitch into.
So this week I wanted a stitch that is easier, with a  lighter appearance.
These stitches are over 4 linen threads - mainly because a multiple of 4 fits evenly within the squareYou can alter the appearance of the stitch by altering the number of linen threads the stitches are stitched over and are separated by.  If needed don't forget to insert compensating stitches along the edge.    Click here for stitch instructions and stitch diagrams


  1. I went to a contemporary art fair in Shanghai recently, which was a real eye-opener. Chinese contemporary art has come leaps and bounds from the watery Zen landscapes to huge canvases of strange-looking beings. The prices being asked and paid were huge too.
    Oriental, if not Chinese, my print of Jean-Léon Gérôme's painting,, bought some time ago from, is as lovely as ever.
