TAST week 4

Guess what! The carry-on bag that my embroidery hoop + needle were in, got searched at the airport! But they didn't take the needle! I guess an embroidery needle isn't an illegal pointy object!

I didn't do any embroidery on the flight, though. But this afternoon I finished this thing for TAST.

I'd never used this particular stitch before (cretan or Open Cretan), but it's fast becoming a favourite of mine. I think it's really pretty.

And I'm so happy with how this little thing has turned out. The stitches looked kind of like coral to me, so I decided to use orange-y and blue colours. A wee embroidered coral reef...
