Take a stitch Tuesday

Finally, I have done the take a stitch Tuesday with Sharon B at http://www.pintangle.com/  on my crazy quilt journal project.  That has been my intention all along but I didn't know what I was doing with my crazy quilt until just last week.  Here I have done the Cretan stitch which is the focus this week.  I have never done this stitch prior to this.  I quite like it and will definitely use it on my crazy quilts from now on.  I think the metallic thread shows up nicely on the dark fabric.  I am not showing the whole block as it is not finished yet but will be by the end of the week.
