Maureen B. and i have agreed to explore some kantha stitching together. Clicking on her name will get you to her blog where she has posted her first fiddlings(as she calls them. We have also exchanged a number of links that show both you tube tutorials on it, but also descriptions and and some patterns.

I started a small piece and have no idea where it is, so decided to start a new one.Essentially it seems that i am practicing the running stitch and learning different things about it. It is more complicated that it looks.lol.
When i just did stab sttiches for the running stitch, the thread stayed more on the surface , but when i did a needleful of sttiches and then brought the thread all the way through,the friction flattened the thread.

Here is my try..unfinished of course.
