So I've discovered a passion for needlework thanks to finally trying it  Cheesy I'm up to 3 stitches: back stitch, french knot, and chain stitch and am having a blast.  Anyhoo I just finished a project for my sister...acutally I had already done something like this on the sewing machine with just regular stitches based off of a pin http://pinterest.com/pin/9922061648904540/ but then after trying hand embroidery I had the lightbulb go off and I trashed that and made this instead

Pardon the weird photo I was using my daughters kiddy camera, lol.


And here's a close up from the scanner


As you can see from the markings that I need to erase yet, I was going to go with twigs, but after seeing an awesome tree hoop (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=405090.msg4795307#msg4795307) by pennydreadful I decided to go in the knot direction and I'm so glad I did because this is going to be an awesome pillow!

OMG I loved this right away when I saw the thumbnail!! I'm so flattered that you liked the tree emboidery I did so much to make your own using the same method!! So awesome!!  Grin
French knots are so great, they really add something special I think.  They're a little unexpected but look so fantastic!

I loved that hoop so much I was like, I've got to learn how to do those knots! So I hit youtube and then I just went to town with it  Grin you can tell where some of my knots are a bit wonky, lol, but toward the end they were coming out pretty good and a lot quicker than the first few!

You did a wonderful job with this. I also use the scanner for closeups of anything that I can lay flat.
