Running stitch is the most basic stitch around the embroidery stitches. It may have the reputation of being dull and flat, but have a look at this: It’s amazing how the texture changes if you whip the running stitch. The flat one is seed stitch, the raised one is whipped running stitch. I think this picture reflects very well how small alterations of a stitch can change the whole thing.

I used this same effect in my geometric animals series, which is made entirely of running and whipped running stitch. You can check them out here.
