Success...

Well, they probably wouldn't stand up to the scrunity of a 'professional' stitcher but they are a start... What am I talking about? My french knots of course. After feeling somewhat frustrated after my last efforts I decided in that I would have another go - as you do... So in the midst of cleaning up I sat down amongst the 'rubble' and took up the needle once again... And bingo they worked!!!!! So I went onto do five in a row... Now as I said they aren't by any stretch Embroidery Guild standard - but they are there in the place they are meant to be and looking somewhat like what they are suppose to... I guess at looking at them compared to the rest of the stitching - they match - rustic!!!! I will post a picture when I have completed the next bit...

Well done, Sharlee!! French knots get to me at times too...I think it has something to do with how far your tongue is sticking out at the time - lol!!

I could never do them until I moved into a hoop - now I still cannot do them without a hoop - unless I stick the needle into my leg, or something else handy (but less painful). :)
