While I was scanning Facebook yesterday I came across a post from Theresa Martin about a new embroidery challenge blog called Needle Thread Cloth . After reading the initial ideas, I decided to join in. I love to embroider by hand and have lots of unfinished projects just waiting in the wings. So I jumped at the chance to start this new journey.
Many of you have seen this piece posted on my blog and as you can see, I haven’t done much to it embellish it further.
I have decided to continue to embellish this using the monthly challenges as jumpstart ideas. Here is what I have done so far towards this month’s challenge, creating Floral French Knots. I used variegated perle cotton #5 by DMC for the knots.
I’m sure I will be adding lots more over the weekend. I just wanted to share with you what I had and ask you to join us. It’s gonna be fun!
Keep it simple!
P.S. Here is a close up of the flowers that I added before this challenge. I’m sure I will have to add some french knots to the center of these.
