  1. I know…….that Pinterest Board is divine! Look at all the options! I’m ‘in’ for this challenge as the running stitch is SO easy and can be incorporated with other embroidery stitches, too! Working on something at the moment, so count me in!

  2. Here are my first 2 attempts.  I had the bird fabric and embroidered over the image.  I used the straight stitch to achieve shading.  The second image is rubber stamped on a tea bag and stitched around the perimeter using the running stitch.  I have another idea I want to try, but I’m not sure when I’ll have a chance to work on it.
