A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, I'm still plugging away on Sojourner and here's where I left off last night....

... I'm still waffling about the centres of the pink flowers.... they are supposed to be filled with french knots done in "Her Crowne" and my knots basically suck as they are something I am just unable to master to my satisfaction, I am thinking of filling them with over one stitching...  I'll make that decision at some point later on.

Hello Edgar,

It's fun reading your blog.
French knots...I know how you feel....why don't you use tiny beads?

greetings

This is coming along so pretty! I have problems with French knots, too.

The floral border colours are just delightful

I hate French knots as well Edgar! I would satin stitch them or just leave them as they are for interest.

Have you tried colonial knots?

I have found that the colonial knot works out better for me than the french knot.

French knots are a pain! Whatever you decide it will be a beautiful sampler!

Hi Edgar....your sampler is coming along nicely and if you don't like to do french knots ( ;) why not putting little beads...I used to do that :)
As you, I don't like french knots, I prefer to do colonial knots : they look better.
Have a wonderful day,
Isa

This is such a pretty stitch! How about beads instead of french knots?

Hi Edgar,
Such a beautiful job. I, as well, have difficulties with French Knots. I am with Isadarena and Minnie---- try Colonial Knots. They, I think, come out much nicer/easier.
