I joined the Take A Stitch Tuesday project in 2012 to teach myself embroidery and learn from others; these are my stitches.

TAST 2012 Stitch 16: French Knot
It’s been a while since I last took part in Take A Stitch Tuesday; as it turns out, it’s changed a bit. Now the stitches are numbered rather than the weeks. I could easily pick up again where I left off before; only my numbering may be off a little.
I started this one ages ago and actually never completed it: it’s not one of my favorites. I like the effect though, and will surely use it again.

Use French knots all the time – great when I want to mask a hem, without actually hemming something! Enjoy the knots: loathe hemming!
My newest Etsy toys feature them – pop around and have a look-see sometime. Its the Buchanan Foxes posts, if you do call in!
A long time ago, I knew how to sew French knots, but I'd have to Google how now.
Ohh…this is so pretty. It is always in my mind that I want to learn to do embroidery. Is is difficult to learn? Can you suggest where should I start to learn ho to do this since I never do this before…?? I am browsing around your blog right now? Thank you for sharing! Please visit
Oh my… the french knots look gorgeous… And I love the colours too..
I'm not sure which I'd prefer though: hemming or french knots…
