TAST Week 4 - Cretan Stitch
Knowing that I have a very busy week this week, I got stitching this Cretan Stitch on the Tuesday when Sharon first posted it on her blog.
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
And the reason I have a busy week this week is that hubby (that crazy-dooman) bought a boat last weekend and has given me a shopping list of things he needs for it and things to do to get it ready for taking out this coming long-weekend - and he also says I need to buy a life jacket and a wet-suit for myself (waaaahhhhhaaaahaaa). I have no idea where he got the impression that I would be accompanying him. He knows I love swimming and is trying to entice me to go out on the boat with him. But I have no love of the ocean and I hate (no that is not too strong a word for it) fishing.
Wish me luck, and I hope I return here in one piece to stitch TAST week 5.
