In Margaret Pascoe's book she discusses those who work straight onto fabric and those who need to draw their design on paper first. Thank goodness for squared paper! I found this disconcertingly complex and it took many attempts before I could really see what was happening. It is lovely in a very formal way and the continuous running stitch gives the appearance of the stitches being embedded in the fabric. I also like the strong sense of directionality.
