TAST - Week 4 - Cretan

This week we're focusing on the cretan stitch for Take-a-Stitch Tuesday.

For some reason, I had the hardest time getting the hang of this stitch. So, as a result, I'm a little behind in getting the piece finished. I thought I would post a WIP picture in order to make Sharon's weekly roundup.

The upper wing is comprised of 4 rows of cretan stitch separated by rows of backstitch & some beading, the lower wing is layered detached chain stitch which I really like because of the texture & dimensionality (Ok, I may just be making up words now.) it adds.
