It's time to share some stitching with you again - this past week's assigned stitch was French Knots. I have done many French Knots over the years and there really is not much you can do to vary the stitch other than to use a different number of wraps, and try different weights of threads... So I have
experimented a bit with various threads- from perle cottons to silk buttonhole twist: I have used Finca and Valdani Perles, SassaLynn perles, Caron Wildflowers and Japanese Silk Buttonhole Twist by YLI. So here is my sampler, nothing fancy, just an exploration of French Knots in some seam treatments and a few "snowflakes" and flowers.... The smaller knots are one wrap, the larger two wraps... I'm not overly thrilled with this sampler, but it will do, "done is good", time to move on to this week's challenge...
I've also included a few photos of French Knots on past projects. Some in silk ribbon, some in thread... Click here to see others' work for last week - click on the comment links, and here for the highlights of the week.
