Cretan stitch

More hand embroidery fun for the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge of this week...
Cretan Stitch, an easy and versatile stitch... I'm sure I'm going to play more with this one...

More lovely stitching. Are you planning to make postcards with all your stitch samples?

This is nice, I like the way you got a shadow effect with the darker colour.

I do like the colours you are using for your samplers. Are these fabrics that you have dyed yourself and are you going to continue all the way through with this colour scheme? I think it would look quite spectacular.

Françoise said...

Yes, I dyed these fabrics myself.
And I plan to continue with these... although I'll probably have to dye some more before the end of the year!

These look great Francoise and I was going to ask about the fabrics as well but you have answered that question they are beautiful
