The French Knot challenge

Inspired by Carol, teller of tall tales this fabric looked like just the background I could use. Great way to finish the t.v. season for Amazing Race, The Good Wife, Mr. Selfridge, Call the Midwife, and cheer on the end of Dancing With The Stars and The Voice.

I have no idea what I am doing. There are no rules. French knots are mesmerizing. Summer handwork.


  1. I am so glad that I stopped by. I love this print and the way you embellished it with the French knots looks beautiful. So where is my hoop and floss? Great work.

  2. Lovely knots...will it be a cushion?
    I think Midwives is done for this year. :o(

  3. When I was 12, I bought an embroidery kit - blue felt forget-me-nots,
    with French knot centers. We had out of town guests, one of whom was a
    home ec. teacher. I asked her if I was making the French knots correctly.
    Mother didn't flip, but asked me to put it somewhere else, don't let Dad see me working
    on it! It was ok - and I finished it later!


  4. Oh My! Isn't that looking great? Do you know what you'll do with it when finished? Pillow, framed? I'm sure it will look wonderful.
