Cretan Stitch [TAST]


Take a Stitch Tuesday - this week's stitch is cretan stitch. I used this stitch a lot when I was doing my City & Guilds embroidery course. But I still had to look how to do it! [poor brain]
It is to be part of a fabric journal, which includes paper. I scanned this page first but the top left leafy paper came out all blurred, so then I photographed it but it is a bit dark.
Anyone in the UK see the Northern Lights yesterday? I didn't and I don't suppose I will today as it is very cloudy.

  1. Gorgeous page. Too far south to see the Northern lights I'm afraid but am very envious of those who can.
