Embroidery Challenge, Floral French Knots

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.
