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

I don't think I've ever braved more than 10 french knots in one piece, I think these are great.  I love the multicolored look the letters have.

I also really like the way your handwriting turned out on the tree picture, you wouldn't want to have perfect writing with a quirky saying like that anyway.  Smiley  Digging the pink tree, too.

These are awesome!

I found a frame almost exactly that shape at a thrift store! So it's one of those "Just keep looking..." things. Have you thought about stretching it on an oval embroidery hoop? You can find those online or in a craft store, probably cheaper than a frame.

i love these--so personal and homey, yet still modern and clean!  for the frames, you might look at second hand or thrift stores...if you found 2 similar frames and painted them the same color, they'd match.  also, it from the looks of the sample pic they didn't put the glass in the frame, but if you wanted to protect it without squishing the knots, they sell things you can stick along the outer edge to raise the glass from the art...less dusting!

These are so great!  I really like all the french knots and how they are casually ordered and not super tightly arranged.

Oh my goodness! I am so impressed by your patience with those french knots. I am also impressed by your name -- it's the same as mine, right down to the spelling. Wink Go "Alyssa"s!

LOVE THIS!
I do a lot of embroidery, but I have yet to master the french knot - I know people say it's easy, but mine either comes completely un-knotted or is just a hot mess of floss...of course this is the 3rd totally awesome project I've found featuring it....I might have to buckle down and just do it.
Great work - your an inspiration!

I love these! French knots are one of my favorite stitches by far. I just love the texture.
