Lovely...I want to rub it against my cheek! I find using two hands for French knot works best for me, too...although I like mine puffy sometimes.

The thing with them is, they're very OCD....once you start 'em, you just want to keep doing 'em! Or maybe that's just me.

Anyway, terrific job and awesome first post!

soooo pretty.  It reminds me of when i was little and i used to stare at a bright light and then close my eyes.  if you kept them closed for long enough you got to see all sorts of pretty, but weird, patterns.  no wonder I can't thread a needle these days. LOL.

I love how everyone just wants to touch it. In fact, when people see it in person, that's usually what they do.  Grin

I think it looks like all the things people have mentioned: jawbreaker, agate, geode, celestial body. It's very open. I love french knot projects.  I did an insane amount of french knots on a project once.  Never really perfected it but I sure can slap down a french knot without a peek at the embroidery how-to books now.
