at least for the most part. While playing with lines I kept thinking about using a Cretan stitch for a grid. Finally, tried it! Here are a few of those attempts.
I wanted to take that over to the wheel concept. The Cretan stitch can follow a curve, even if I have a problem making it do that.
Here is another trial without any Cretan stitches, practice curves.
The bead just wouldn’t take as many threads as I wanted to feed through it. I had to settle for a semicircle. But I had a lot of fun with this and called it my blue sunset.
I had to try a flower. It’s not a wheel, but at least it is a small arc. A little weak, but I could see it blowing in the strong spring winds we’ve been having in the central valley the last few days.
