TAST 2012 #22: Knotted 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.

It took me a while to get the hang of this one. I do like the effect with the couched ribbon; it makes it nice & textural..
