On this rainy day I have been readying my supplies for the "french knot caper" embroidery project that I told you about a few weeks ago. I went to the fabric store downtown and looked at every flowered bolt of material they had and finally settled on this one.
I wanted somewhat of a blank slate so I could put any colors I wanted on it. Hopefully I didn't go too basic and I won't feel I am lacking for enough color in the background. Time will tell.
These colors will be featured for sure as my love affair with all things orange continues unabated. I am thinking of some blues mixed in as well and that 's as far as I have gotten for now.
There is no shortage of colors to choose from and nothing pleases me more than going shopping in my own closets for supplies to use up.
My needles are dusted off and ready to go. I will report back when I have made some progress. If any of you are going to be embarking on your own "french knot caper" please e-mail some photos. This could be the start of something BIG.
