TAST Week 4: Cretan Stitch
For the Cretan stitch, I used size 5 orange DMC perle cotton. Small flowers were added to each side using 2 strands of orange and black DMC embroidery floss.
Above is one of my favorite crazy quilt seams that I created using the Cretan stitch. It was added to Lisa Boni's block in the Heart Round Robin we participated in together in 2014. (You may see the completed block here.)
TAST Week 5: Herringbone Stitch
Using white size 8 perle cotton, I embellished this seam with the herringbone stitch. I added a second layer of herringbone stitches with blue size 8 perle cotton.
Above is a seam I created using the herringbone stitch. This seam was added to Alexandra Henry's block in the Heart Round Robin we participated in together in 2014. (You may see the completed block here.)
TAST stands for Take a Stitch Tuesday. It is a personal stitching challenge offered by Sharon B. on Facebook and on her blog, pintangle.com. You may read more about it here. This week, the chevron stitch was introduced. I am one week behind, but should be all caught up by next Tuesday. I must admit, some of the creativity being shared with this challenge is truly inspiring!
Thank you for stopping by!
