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.
Hello I am visiting you from the Needle Thread Cloth challenge blog.
Love your colorful quilt pieces and the french knots really do add a lot!
This is gorgeous! Hope I can be half as productive as you!
Beautiful! You are off to a great start. The multicolored French Knots look fab in your flowers.
I need to wake up my muse and begin my piece for June.
Good to see your post! Really cute and colorful Marci! Love the variegated French Knots! School is almost out – want to try meeting for coffee again?
Love it Marci!
Isn’t it great how this fit right in to what you were doing? So glad you joined us.
