Running stitch – so old, so basic, but still one of the best.
It’s honest, trustworthy and it works hard. It’s strong and capable, simple yet effective. You can rely on running stitch to just get on with the job without protest or fuss. It does what it’s told, and it stays where you put it. It holds layers together and joins seams; it can be large or small, long or short, thick or thin. The kind of solid, dependable stitch everyone needs.
So if you were a stitch, what kind of stitch would you be?
Just a bit of anthropomorphic silliness for a Friday morning.
