more TASTy herringbone and cretan

Here are a few more seam treatments. The top one is herringbone, of course and was fun to do.

The bottom row is a combination herringbone/cretan, which seems like such a simple idea, I don't know why I've never seen it before. It wasn't my idea either, I got it out of a book mentioned on SharonB's site here. Only the one page in the booklet is in color, but it's still an interesting collection of stitches - check it out.
Happy Stitching.......

All your stitches are pretty, but I love the green and pink!

The herringbone looks so pretty and soft in those pastel colors. I like your combination stitch. I may have to try one on something!

Oh I like both of these stitch combos, they are lovely and food for thought.
