I can´t get enough from running stitches

Running stitches are the simplest stitches imaginable, but can be applied in so many different ways.

What I love the most, is the haptic experience. The texture of a piece of cloth changes completely when embroidered. As a real textile lover I discover cloth at least as much with my hands as with my eyes. It must feel good. This is also one reason for my preference of natural fibres. Because they always feel good.

In-betweens are remnants of cloth, sewn together and stitched in between other projects, especially if I have only 10 minutes in between other things or if I need a break from other projects. Because it is just so relaxing.

Seed stitch is a variation of the running stitch with a different look and feel. While the texture of running stitches, running in the same direction feels kind of smooth and comforting, the texture of seed stitches feels harsh, rugged and thrilling..

As it is in real life: It feels far more comforting to run in the same direction with all the others and far more exciting to find your own way.

I will continue exploring the possibilities of running stitches. There is still so much to discover.

And if I need to calm myself I will go for running stitches. They are always soothing my soul.
