I think it looks great! and the fact that your most comfortable with french knots is amazing most people hate them, I myself cant seem to make the dang things the same size... as far as your chain stitch it looks good but i think it you want it to look more like a chain you have to separate the stitches a little bit so it looks like a "chain" after watching treecatus embroidery video tutorials under the needlework discussion board it really helped me get the chain stitch.Oh great, I will take a look at those video tutorials. I've watched the ones on needlenthread.com but the chain stitch one moved a little fast. It helped me to get it more even and neat but not to make it look like a chain. The video of french knots on that site was excellent though, I got it straight away from watching that tutorial.
Thanks for your comments and advice
