Apparently I have a thing for trees:) This was my first embroidery project... and I chose about a billion french knots... I'm a genius.







What do you think?

That is awesome. How long did it take to do all of those knots? I've never done frestyle embroidery before. I always follow an ironed on pattern. I think I could manage your lovely tree though! I have loads of buttons that would work. I like the green butons, I think that pink, white or yellow buttons could look like flowers. That give me the idea of why not embroider a tree for each season.

Thanks for the wonderful inspiration!

I'm not sure how long it took but I watched a whole lot of Avatar: The Last Airbender while doing it haha. After a while you get into a rythem. I've never followed a patern haha!  and those are great ideas!

I love the texture of all those French knots.  It looks like a very healthy, leafy tree!  Well done. Smiley
