Running stitches

This little pillow from India supports my back in my sewing room.

Check out Jude Hill's Spirit Cloth posting and her links to some great examples of the running stitch.

and now I'd like to do some internet searching on kantha!


When I get to my circles in the TIF challenge, I've already decided that I'll do a big spiral (in running stitch, of course) in the middle of the piece.

It's beautiful! But don't you wear it out supporting your back on it? I would be scared to use something so beautiful.

It is a "tough" little pillow -- see how "squished" it is! It fits my lower back perfectly! Maryjo
