Threaded Arrow Stitch

Okay I've finally finished the Chain of Hearts group DYOB second week's stitch on both my own heart block and the square block for swapping with a participating member.  Now you can barely tell this stitch as it's the brown/black used as a base to thread the cord which was a chore to get through the fabric to hide the ends and also the strung beads.  A very useful stitch for heavier embellishments to anchor in place.

Now onto the third week's "Cretan" stitch. This will be a challenge as you can see I used that stitch to weave the varigated cord through the Threaded Arrow St. So I'll have to get more creative me thinks! Hmmmm!
I still am behind in my March commitments, but slowly creaping forwards!!!
