Learning to Stitch – Cretan

Well, I’ve been carrying on trying out the new stitches in Sharon’s The Stitch Files. This time I have given Cretan Stitch a go and here’s the results of my experiments:

I put off trying this stitch, thinking it looked difficult, but it has been my favourite so far, surpassing even the good ole blanket/buttonhole stitch.

I love the way it looks over the ricrac, though not sure how secure the ricrac would be…so maybe a few beads or sparkly things to hold in place would do the trick. Mmmmm…ricrac and beads and sparkly things 🙂



  1. Thanks for the lilnk. Never heard of her before. Will definitely take a look.

    I’ve found a huge source of ric rac – over the moon!

  2. I love learning embroidery stitches, too. thanks so much for your comment on my blog. I would have sent you an email, but you don’t have your email address on your comments. That’s a setting that can be made on your blog settings.

  3. Ooh, lucky you with the ricrac Clare!

    Roz – I don’t know how to change my settings after going through all the options on wordpress!!
