I’ve been trying to teach myself how to do hand embroidery by reading books, and looking at websites. I’ve learned quite a few of the stitches, relatively easily, but I’ve always had trouble with the “french knot”. Well, my friends… I finally made a french knot today. Whoo-hoo! I’m now ready to use my french knot knowledge to make cute mini blossoms and perty little flower centers. I’ve always loved the look of vintage linens (towels, table cloths, napkins, etc.) that had hand embroidery. I think I’d like to really master this embroidery thing and perhaps sell my creations. So there you have it. French knot, Whoo-hoo!
