TAST Cretan Stitch















After a few weeks in cyber-limbo and some false starts with other software, I decided that Blogger would suit me just fine....
I am a little behind with my TAST, as I have been gone on my annual quilt retreat to Point Bonita, California for a week. (I'll be posting more about that soon.) This is the last work I have done, and it was using the Cretan stitch over a printed photograph of some white pines that I took on the shore of Lake Michigan. I think this idea of embellishing photos has a lot of potential.

It will no doubt take me a little while to learn the Ways of Blogger, but in the meantime this is a start! I'm so glad to be back.....
