This week's stitch for TAST was the cretan stitch. I am definitely not a fan of this stitch. It's very simple and yet I had such trouble with it. I kept getting the needle on the wrong side of the thread and kept getting my spacing wrong. I think I frogged out as much as I embroidered in. But it does make for a very nice fill-in stitch on aida cloth.
My subject for this past Tuesday was the Eskimo Pie. Christian K. Nelson of Iowa patented the Eskimo Pie on January 24, 1924.
Nana was the one that taught me to cross stitch when I was about 4.
