Sister Artists

Now I have added the bottom border. I chose this African print from Tanzania. It brings it some of the colours of the embroidery. 
Running stitch 

I decided to use my adaptation of the Pekinese Stitch...the loops over running stitches. 

The threads are from InStitches , one of them the same as used on the scraps which make up the ground. 
When you see the piece in person, the lines that have been made by the loops are obvious. 
Heee you can see the difference made by covering the bold print with stitching. The original fabric is on the left. 
So the fabric is blended into the whole much better.
