TAST meets Stitch Explorer
Some of you might remember I made a laidwork foundation fish for Stitch Explorer in 2009. At the time I planned to finish this embroidery with water-plants. The knotted Cretan stitch was a great excuse to turn my WISP into a finished TAST sampler! First I frogged the big French knot eye and replaced it by a French knot with 1 thread of stranded floss. For the water-plants I’ve used feather stitches, French knots, alternating barred chain and knotted Cretan stitch. The alternating barred chain is decorated with beads. The threads are Caron Watercolor, Caron Wildflowers and DMC perle 5 color variations. There’s a bigger photo’s of this embroidery on my Flickr-page.
