TAST 4: Cretan Stitch

Ever since being on the cast of "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum" about 15 years ago, the word "Cretan" always triggers the line, "Oh no, a religious Cretan."

I really liked this stitch. It would be great for embroidering a trilobite.

Certain bits about the back were also surprisingly pleasing (the center area, behind the pods).

(Cotton, DMC 777)

I'm kind of obsessed with trilobites right now, but that hasn't translated into actually doing anything with them.

I think you *did* embroider a trilobite or two in that sampler, didn't you? ~grin~ Exxxscellent!

It was meant to be a botanical/pods/pomegranate sort of thing, but I kept being reminded of trilobites!
