I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This pattern was too cute to pass up. Of course I had to add beads instead of French knots. I turned them into ornaments.

CUTE! I love it in red. French knots and I don't get along. I tried some other kind of knot - I can't remember what it's called but its Chinese I think (?) that is a little bit bigger than a French knot and was a lot easier for me. Hope I remember how to do it....

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Super cute!  When I saw the thumbnail I thought his n hers hand towels, but ornaments are even better.

Are they French beads, at least?   Kiss
