This form of Japanese embroidery uses “a form of running stitches to create beautiful patterns, which often repeat or create a tiled effect.” Read more, get free patterns, and see the step-by-step tutorial at About Needlecrafts.

As always, if you make this, please share a photo of your completed project! Happy stitching! πŸ™‚

I’ve been thinking about how nice it is to have someone who is always willing to listen. It doesn’t matter if you’re happy or sad or mad or glad, if you have something to share, they’ll be there. Do you have someone like that in your life? I hope you do. πŸ™‚

To help you celebrate that person, I’ve created a new cross-stitch pattern for you. It’s also available on my embroidery patterns page.
