TAST 2012 #04: Cretan Stitch

I joined the Take A Stitch Tuesday project in 2012 to teach myself embroidery and learn from others; these are my stitches.
There is a new 2018 version active; visit this website if you would like to join or just have a look at all the beautiful stitching.

TAST 2012 Stitch 4: Cretan Stitch
This week I got it done early 🙂 Again a stitch I liked. It’s turning out to be so much fun to learn! Now I’m trying hard to think of something to make using my newly learned stitches…
