French Knot, that is!
I made 53 french knots..I counted!
I was having a bout of insomnia, hormones, gotta love 'em, so instead of tossing and turning and fussin, I got up, went into the livingroom and turned on the tv. I know, I know, what kind of person doesn't have a tv in her bedroom? LOL
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull was on. Since it was on for the umpteenth time and I had seen it more than once, I thought I should practice my embroidery skills since there is an embroidered quilt that is on my 2012 to do list. I have the Sublime Stitching book and it has a skull or two in it......it went with the movie, what can I say?
French knots: 3 strands, wrapped twice
Back-stitch: 6 strands
Running stitch: 3 strands
This is what it looked like by 1:40 in the blessed A. M.
I worked on the yellow and the bright green last night while I watched tv.
It's nice to have a little something to do while you stare at the ol' boob tube.
Yellow: 6 strands
Light green stem stitch: 3 strands
There is no rhyme or reason to the color selection. It's just what I have on hand. I did try to make it not look totally spastic though. LOL
Now, what color should I pick next?
It is safe to say that I don't totally suck at french knots anymore!! woo and hoo!
