(Sorry I missed my scheduled slot because of 'the boating' thing. So slotting in at the end of the weekend).
TAST Week 4 - Cretan Stitch
I enjoyed creating these variations of the stitch and will definitely 'play' some more with it.
From left to right the stitches are:
Cretan Stitch in lilac
Various stitch lengths and widths in navy blue
Knotted Cretan in light blue
(this one took a bit of coaxing to get it right, and even then I had trouble getting the knots to stay in place, but I persevered with it)
Raised Cretan in green
Open Double Raised Cretan in green
CQJP - January WIP
The 'naked block' is 9" square.
I have only got this one made so far.
And just a bit of stitching added here
The Crazy Quilt journal project is my most dominant and time consuming WIP.
I like the addition of the lilac and aubergine coloured threads, and I shall be keeping to threads in blues, teals, turquoise and purples. Along with black, white and greys.
The ribbon embroidery and bead embellishments will probably be in the same colours as well.
Lots more embroidery to add yet, and then the beads!!!
Busy, busy, busy (but very enjoyable).
BJP - Teardrop Pendant - January finished
Very pleased with how this pendant turned out, and looking forward to creating a different pendant for February.
any, and all, suggestions, help, advice and critiques for my projects are most welcome and even encouraged.
