TAST Week - 4 - Cretan stitch

Hi Friends,
I'm posting the first post of Week -4 of Sharon's TAST challenge. The work is still in progress, I'm posting as I stitch along. This is the design I choose to stitch.
 First flower  filled with Cretan Stitch

I have done one more motif on cretan stitch, you see it here. After posting the photos, I have a doubt, have I done the right stitch, or not?

Cretan comes in different forms, I think, and it looks to me as if you yes, have done Cretan, perhaps the closed stitch? I think it looks different since you've used it to curve with.

It's lovely work, and how fast you were onto this!

Maggi said...

Lovely work. It certainly looks like Cretan stitch to me.

Love the flower in cretan stitch.

I have enjoyed looking at your blog. Your stitches are well sewed. May I ask where you find your designs? I think it is a great way to experiment with the stitches, but if I have to design a design to stitch on, I'd never accomplish anything. Kathy http://kathysnest32.wordpress.com/

Forgot to say I am also involved in the TAST . It takes me a long time to decide what to sew on.

Isabelle said...

lovely flower. I like the pattern and the way you have used the cretan stich.
