In the last Ongoing Hoopla Swap round my partner listed the theme "trees". I looked around at so many diffrent options but I finally decided that I really wanted to try a whole tree of french knots.  I just did plain back stitches in a few different colors for the trunks and branches.  This was the restult!





Thanks for looking! C&C always welcome!

Oh my gosh, thank you all so much!!  I really loved how this turned out and it was so hard to part with.  I definitely got a lot better at making the knots as this worked up.  After a while they were so easy to make.  Again thank you all for the kind words, it means a lot!  Grin
