Take a stitch Tuesday

The Cretan stitch is one that I have yet to master.  Part of the problem is I am not willing to draw lines on my work.  So this time around I thought I would try it with beads.  I thought the bead might help me keep my spacing even.  I guess it helped.  Somehow I managed to get the second to last bead askew and I am unable to correct it due a big nasty knot that happened in the thread.  I am only willing to fight with my embroidery for so long.  The mistake will have to stand. Thanks to Sharon B at  for the beautiful instructions.
