I am very impressed. Your stitching is stunning! What ink did you use so it didn't show up underneath the stitching? (I may have a go with something much simpler to start with lol Dxx

Oh that's so pretty - a perfect use for that stamp set. You make the embroidery look so effortless!

I think if I lived to be 100 I'd never conquer the French knot though ... never.

I loved this when I saw it on the CI blog and I still love it. I've never seen that ink before so thanks for bringing it to my attention.

That's amazing!

Glad to see from the other comments that I'm not the only one who struggles with French Knots :-)
