CQJP 2012 and TAST - February work

I don't know why but for some reason I had trouble getting started on my work for this block. Then I decided why don't I add the TAST challenge stitches to it.
Here is the finished block

How I incorporated the TAST stitches was to add them to the seams first, Cretan with star sequins and red seed beads and feather stitch also enhanced with red and green beads.

 herringbone and detached chain.
 The wreath contains chevron, Cretan, fly, and herringbone stitch.
 First was a circle of chevron, then between each was cretan. On top of that is a round of herringbone and last several random fly stitches.  The wreath was then enhanced with gold star sequins and red, green and gold seed beads.

Now two down, 10 to go.....
