Before my vintagy floral tunic, I was preoccupied with something else. French knots that was. My plain tunic was ready for an embellishment for a while, and I finally picked up a needle. A French knot is a super easy embroidery stitch. You just make a knot by looping a thread a couple times around the needle. Here
is how to do it if you ask. I just made them a lot to shape dandelions. This helped me meditate while watching the balloon boy story on CNN :-) I used my brown linen cotton blend for the tunic and linen embroidery floss for the dandelions. And this is my second tunic using the same pattern
. And speaking of French, a Peapod regular Sophie
is blogging about me, but in French...so who reads French? And I just visited her blog and saw her Frenchy images of my fabrics. Red gingham and dot...to me it's not country. It's a French thing! Merci Sophie!
