TAST-Running Stitch

A lovely simple stitch this time for TAST-running stitch.


I did a double row of running stitch around the square in pale green Anchor Perle, then laced it with white.

I then used running stitch to quilt the block. The three dimensional look doesn't really show up in the photo, but I like the way the picture seems to come to life after quilting.

The mouse button was added to give the cat something to chase.

Like how you made such a basic stitch look more interesting. Cute mouse too - though I prefer wooden ones to the real thing! LOL :0)
