french octopus

french knots

I resolved at the beginning of the year to practice my french knots. So I have been working on them as part of this embroidery that I’m stitching for Master E. They’re very inconsistent. Some goodies but some shockers too.

I think I am capturing the irregularities of nature really well – that’s what I’m telling myself!


  1. nothing like being inspired by nature!! lol

  2. Absolutely - brilliant theory. My mum likes to think of the Amish philosophy when quilting that 'only god is perfect' so everything/anything you make can't be perfect and you should always include at least one 'stuff up' in homage! I thought it was as good an excuse as any!! I also think you're doing a great job, my stitching is always messy and inconsistant, no matter how hard i try.

  3. Ohh looks good - I love embroidery!

  4. French knots do my head in. I want to master them but I just can't get the hang of them.
