Cretan Stitch - DYOB

Well I just made it in time before #4 DYOB stitch is posted - PHEWIE!!!  See Sunday morning the next stitch on this Chain of Hearts DYOB activity will be posted.

BUT I can't take credit for this design using the cretan embroidery stitch, even though this is my favourite embellishing stitch, beaded or not, as it was an idea within "The Magic of Crazy Quilting" by J. Marsha Michler - my CQing bible that is now starting to fall apart from constant use!!!  Then I added gold delica beads for stars to the sky.  I've left the seam finish untouched at this time - maybe a future stitch will finish off there OR when all stitches are embellished then I'll choose something else to finish it off.

Now wonder what tomorrow will bring?
