I am still having great fun making french knots. Especially on a Monday, with my feet up, drinking coffee, and looking at the peonies.
I am delighted to see evidence that others have joined in on the fun. Please leave a comment with a link to your site if you are doing one too. I want to see if you are employing techniques I need to incorporate into mine.
I started out by doing some outlining and then filling in with french knots.
Then I made straight lines of french knots.
Then I thought about the need for some negative spaces.
When I started on this pomegranate complete madness took over and I started cramming as many knots as possible into the space. Then I decided shading was a good idea.
I do not know how long this project will go. Either when I get tired of making knots, I stick myself with the needle one too many times, or I run out of embroidery floss. Until that time I am not planning ahead about what I will do next. I just pick a color and start on an area. The less thinking the better. By it's nature, french knot needlework is a very inexact science.
