I made a color wheel out of French knots. I am kind of in love with them now.



I blogged about it here http://hugsarefun.com/french-knot-color-wheel/

Lovely. I'm working on a colour wheel stitch sampler too right now but there is no way I could do so many French knots.
Yours are so neat and densely packed. It must have taken you ages. But the effect is stunning.

Is it the Dropcloth color wheel sampler?

I don't think so.  It is a 12 petal daisy that our Needlecraft Guild committee found and for the last year we have been learning a new stitch at each monthly meeting which we then use to fill one of the petals.  It has been very educational and everyone has been doing a different interpretation.  I decided to make mine a colour wheel as well as a stitch sampler. 
Nearly finished with the last stitch but I don't know how I will finish it off. One lady has made hers into a clock which looks very nice but that would mean cutting out my French knots which are in the centre. 
Yours actually looks very nice just displayed in the hoop.

Wow! That is soooo many French knots. I am very impressed by your work (and your patience!). This hoop looks really great!

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