Au Revoir French Knots!!


Can I get a WOOT and a drum roll please???  I finished my first WIP for 2017!!!  Only 16 more to go!  Now I will need to save my pennies so I can frame Aurora Cabin.  It hasn't always been a fun stitch (dragging up to 6 strands of threads through 18 count Aida fabric really takes a toll on ones fingers!!) But I will say, I'm thrilled I persevered.  I love how it looks done, and I will say the picture on the front of the kit doesn't do this piece justice!  I'm not even going to count the number of French knots I just navigated, but let's just say it took a good two days to finish them up!  I don't mind doing French knots, but not hundreds at a time!!  LOL  Not bad for two years and 7 days work!

Now I can start a new project...and I have three staring me in the face...whichever will I choose???  (Two of them are gifts, that need to be finished...so I may have to bend the rules and start them all...)  Off to gather supplies and pick one to start today...

Happy Stitching!

Wow that is a fantastic finish! Must feel great to have it done. It's so beautiful and I think the French knots look perfect and really add to the design.
A great start to your stitching year for sure!

OMG, that is so gorgeous!! What an amazing finish! I always think about getting this one, but the 6 threads thing throws me off. Hooray for finishing it so quickly!!

Congratulations on your first Happy Dance of the year! It looks wonderful and will bring back many happy memories every time you look at it. But six strands on 18 count? nooooo.
