…. with French knots. I still love my French frog-turned-Prince-Charming, but there is something about French knots. I guess people either love them or hate them and I’m very much in love. If I have time to pick a needle and thread and do some hand embroidery in nine out of ten cases it will have some of them in it!
This is the latest creation using French knots – actually there is nothing else but the knots. I always admired embroideries which have the main thing (word, symbol etc.) plain and the background of it is heavily stitched. And so one day couple of months ago I put this lovely silk into a hoop and started my joyful work.
I didn’t count how many knots I have made on this piece as it’s very difficult. I usually pick it for a half an hour there and an hour week later, so I would lost the count with first twenty I guess.
It’s sitting in a lovely white box frame and the photos don’t do it justice. I found it very difficult to take a good picture of framed work behind glass. Should have taken pictures before I put it in!
The piece is called OM with French twist – just playing with words 🙂 For explanation of the meaning of OM click here to see what Wikipedia has to say.
