T.A.S.T. and works in progress
This weeks stitch was the cretan, which is actually one I really like. I worked it on two of my blocks this week. The first one is what I call my "blue block". I don't have a lot of work done on this one yet. To the right and below the circles, I did three layers of the stitch in silk. I used green, dark blue, and cream threads. In the paisley block in the upper right hand corner, I used two different shades of gold silk threads and then interwove metallic fun fur through them. I am pleased with the way it turned out. I can't wait to see how the rest of the block finishes.

My second block is my "three flower" block. Again it is nowhere near being finished. On this one, I did 2 layers of the cretan stitch. This time I did the stitches tighter and closer together. They are on the red silk triangle at the bottom right.

Both blocks are really interesting. I like the angle you get on the stitch in the top block, and threading that fun fur through it was definitely unusual. The bottom block is coming along - looks almost finished.

I really enjoyed looking at all your TAST stitches. They are looking great.
