The stitch for TAST this last week was Cretan.
It turned out to be not my favourite, but I hope in the future with practice to love it. It was just difficult to get the rhythm going.
The first idea didn’t turn out very well, so I changed tack and made up a new design based on shapes in Aboriginal Art pieces. Also, I wanted to used some colour in a different way.
Here it is :
The circles were particularly hard but I was quite happy with it in the end. I was thrilled with the border and will use this one again somewhere, sometime. Also, I was happy with my colour choices and I am still in love with variegated.
