March TIF Complete

Here are the pages for March. I chose to explore running stitch. I discovered that a little thing like staggering the running stitch in consecutive rows ( page on the left) versus having them directly above the stitches in the previous row ( page on the right) altered the outcome and the kind of patterns which were created.
Details of some areas.

April is here and the challenge in one word is "Change". Now that I have three pages finished I must start assembling them into the book.

very nice - I love the variations on running stitches - the blackwork style patterns you've created are wonderful

Thanks Fiona, its endless i think, well almost becuase you can just go on creating new patterns, its a bit like joining the dots.

Hi Embellisher,
I love your blog! I, too, am fascinated by the human need to decorate, even though the decoration serves no functional purpose. It is a universal practice. Thanks for visiting my blog. I put you on my blogroll.

Hi Fabiola, TIF is a great challenge, Sharon B is responsible for all this creativity. The Colour Week thing by Leya is fun I must say, puts you in touch with so many great people.
