  2. Those sheep are just too cute! I love/hate making french knots. I seem to never get the right amount - ahh... just one more. And then it seems like it's not balanced... so I add another, and then it looks off... I add two more... it just goes on and on. Perpetual french knot motion!

  5. Hee hee. I'm glad you're enjoying my French knot propaganda... :D

    And Happy zombie, me too! I suffer from "everything must be symmetrical" disease and it kills my French knots! :)

  9. French knots do indeed make little details extra special. But, they are sometimes challenging for me--once in awhile I can get one to work but mostly I don't. So, I appreciate the tutorial as I think it will help a lot.

  10. Those sheep have inspired me. I've had some deep red pillowcases and now I'm embroidering sheep jumping over a fence on them. I LOVE them .... I'm addicted. Thanks for sharing your great ideas.

  11. The seal is lovely! And the sheep as well! I´ve never seen French knots used like that, as the main part of a embroidery work! I used to embroider it just for details, like the eyes or little things around the main design. I just love it and I posted both works in my blog! And I want to do some very soon!!
