Do you know how to do blackwork?  If not, The Blackwork Archives has
a great tutorial on reversible running stitch.

She has some really nice patterns in there, too.  Oo, look... new

It's almost a shame that I recreate 13th century Russia and
Mongolia... I love doing blackwork.  Oh well.  I'll just make some as
a gift or prize or something, if I really get the urge.  There's a
silk Chinese court robe with an embroidered dragon on the back
niggling at my brain right now, though.
