The tenth week stitch of the TAST 2012 challenge by SharonB is running stitch. I had worked some running stitch samples during the previous TAST challenge. It was worked on even weave cloth.
I had also worked on some pattern darning samples for stitch explorer challenge.
A long time thought was to work some samplers on Indian embroideries.
With this week’s running stitch, I think it is the right time to do a kantha embroidery[running stitch] sampler.
I ‘ll start with some kanthawork borders,
1- 1st set of four borders-

2- 1st and the 3rd row- the direction of the stitch is alternated. Running stitch combined with cross stitch in the middle row.

3- Running stitch is done in two colours in the top row, and a kantha border is worked in the second row.

Try and work some more borders tomorrow.
