As soon as I saw this work by Vicki Lugg in one of Shirley’s books I knew I had to do my running stitch based on this piece.
On the left is the original early work originating in Naxos, Greece. On the right is Vicki’s contemporary interpretation.
This is my little piece using elements taken from the original and Vicki’s work.
There are many things I would do differently now but this piece was quickly prepared to take away to the beach house to work on. Nevertheless I enjoyed working on it.
The running stitch is such a simple one but also a very versatile one which is evident by what people produced in the TAST challenge this past week. You can catch up with all the running stitch samples HERE and also on Stitichin Fingers
Looking forward to the challenge for this week now!!
