Hi guys!  This is my first official post on here with my own work (woo).  I have been lurking in the shadows for some time... but here I am!

I am making a hoopla wall for my twin girls bedroom, and here are the first three.  Just thought I'd share!







This was the most labor-intensive one to complete and took me about three days of continuous french knots... But I love the finished product!



This one only took a few hours.  French knot sheep!



I wasn't too thrilled with how this one turned out, but it's still cute so it gets to go on the wall any way.


Thanks for looking guys!

The sheep are cute and I REALLY like the alphabet. The colors go well and there's a very simple, almost hand-drawn look to it.

But I really love your "love". I couldn't do half that many french knots in 3 years, let alone three days! I am not much of a knotter so I am always impressed by pieces that use a lot of french knots. The way they spread out like sand is a really cool effect. Your choice of color, fabric and font really add to it, too. I just really like that piece. Possibly because I make things for my daughters walls and wish I had made that  Grin

Thank you for sharing.

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

Those sheep are so sweet! What stitch did you use for the grass? I love the way it turned out!

Also, the Love is just incredible, and the alphabet is really lovely! But I can never resist an embroidered sheep.  Smiley
