Carol - TAST, Knotted Cretan

I have found Knotted Cretan my most difficult stitch to master thus far.  You will notice my fabric looks like a pincushion with all the "reverse" sewing, also its displayed portrait instead of landscape - not my finest hour!

This does not bode well for Sarah's June travels.  Understand she's feeling a little jaded with all her travelling and is hoping to have a lazy Mediterranean break.

Colours yellow green/red violet

A Mediterranean break sounds great as do the colors.

That stitching looks fine. Where's the picture of the crappy stitching?

Yea, let's all go to the Mediterranean!

Love the fuschia and green together. I like the ridges it produced, Mediterranean hills? Roll with it!

With all of us in the Med together it wouldn't be peaceful or relaxing. However, it might be exciting, stimulating and such great fun.

The evidence has been destroyed!

I really like this months colour combo.

I second that!

But your knotted cretan stitches are so much neater than mine ;) You did as good job with them.
I'm looking forward to the trip to the Med. this month. I could do with a warm-up as there is a cold blast coming here from the South Pole at the moment.

The Mediterranean is sunny, right? We could sure use some warmth here. The nasturtiums I planted a couple whiles ago haven't even sprouted! Love the block already!

Your stitching looks great. This one has defied my understanding so far, but I'm going to try it again.

Mary-Frances Main said...

Me too - I tried, but now that I see everyone else's I don't think I did it right - oh well, try try again! :)

Mary-Frances Main said...

Ha ha! Looks great to me! I was brave enough to show mine! :P

I tried stitching vertically, horizontally every which way. In the end I did a row of basic Cretan and then began (just a little) to understand. Who wants her work to have knots in it anyway?
