Welcome to the weekly hand stitching party! It's Thanksgiving weekend here and we are so very thankful for our stitching hobby/lifestyle that enriches our lives!
**I am having a wee love affair with french knots!**
They are so fun to stitch! Even when it seems like the knots are too big or too loose, or not quite right, when they are together with their friends, they are all perfection!
This photo shows some gold knots for the coneflowers, and there are 2 blue and 1 burgundy hydrangeas full of knots. Such gorgeous texture from these stitched knots 💙
But the bees were not as much fun to stitch. They were fiddly to make with 3 colour changes, and I just wanted to make more knots. My bees turned out too skinny to be nice hunny bees. But anyway, they are done.
And just look at those french knots... deliciousness!
This was a time limited free embroidery pattern from Clever Poppy which I think is only available for purchase now. I'm not sure yet if I will frame it in a circular hoop, or make it into a mini quilt. For now I am just admiring the french knots! 💙
And I am also admiring the beautiful fall scenes which are putting on a spectacular display for us this year! It's my most favourite time of the year! this is a farm I drive by on my way to work and I take fall photos of it every year!
Whatever you are stitching today I hope you are enjoying it as much as I have enjoyed french knots this week! Here is the link up....

Your French knots look perfect, I do enjoy making French knots but getting them right is sometimes a challenge. I left it too late to join in with this little embroidery which is a shame, yours is lovely. Have a peaceful Sunday. 🙃ReplyDelete
Those french knots are making lovely flowers, happy stitching!ReplyDelete
I struggle with French knots, so I learned how to make colonial knots and I feel the same way about them as you do about the French knots. I can really get in the zone when I am making a bunch of them and I love the way they all look together. You flowers are beautiful.ReplyDelete
You did a wonderful embroidery, Kathy. I love all the french knots. What a sweet piece!ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is beautiful. I like french knots too. I love that colorful phot of the farm.ReplyDelete
Your embroidery turned out lovely. I think the more I do French knots the more I like them too. I've got the pattern,, just haven't started yet. Enjoy Thanksgiving weekend.ReplyDelete
The French knots are perfect to make hydrangeas and coneflowers! I really like that little design. Enjoy your stitching today, Kathy!ReplyDelete
So beautiful! Those French knots are fabulous! What a lovely little mason jar bouquet. I can just hear those bees buzzing happily.ReplyDelete
Loving your beautiful French Knots work...so pretty...hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
And your well loved knots are beauties, Kathy! This is a pretty piece, isn't it.ReplyDelete
Love the texture in this piece, great job on your bees (and your French knots).ReplyDelete
That's such a sweet embroidery! I also love making french knots and I LOVE your bees. They look perfect to me!ReplyDelete
Your french knots look fabulous! Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
I always tried french knots but was never 100 percent happy with them. I have discovered a stitch called the colonial knot. Looks like a french knot but is always perfect when I do it. I learned it at guild when they were doing an embroidery lesson.ReplyDelete
Your embroidery is so lovely! And I have to admit, those French knots are particularly stunning.ReplyDelete
Beautiful stitching, particularly the French Knots! Lovely fall view too. Happy stitching!ReplyDelete
The bees are adorable. But I agree, those french knots are so fun.ReplyDelete
Great flowers. I've not tried French knots before.ReplyDelete
