My version of Take a stitch Tuesday

I joined a Facebook group called Joyful Embellishments  https://www.facebook.com/groups/335708879954649/?fref=nf
Valerie Bothell posts a seam treatment each day!  For the month of April she is concentrating on the cretan stitch.  I know I have done it before but I had to look up instructions for it as I didn't remember how to do it.  http://embroidery.about.com/od/Embroidery-Stitches/ss/Cretan-Stitch.htm
I used my new Valdani  cotton threads.  I am adding the stitches to my April CQ block.  Again, I am finding the patterned fabric a bit much but I will keep at it.
