Sneak Peaks Stitching

Some stitching going on, more French knots of course in summery, sunny, yellow…Stitched in the leafy glade with some ice water and lemon, doesn’t that sound good about now since it is 90 and humid here.  Are you celebrating the 4th this weekend, or on Wednesday or both?  We are just trying to keep fraidy dog calm during all those fireworks. Whatever your plans, enjoy.

    Oooooo love those French knots…..
    the 4th is much fun in SF — We can never see the fireworks with all the fog — and it is too cold out to BBQ. Don’t you feel sorry for me????? xo

    Lovin’ those knots! Big shin dig in our back yard on Wed! Family, friends and my in-laws are providing the live music. Gobs of fireworks…and us too…try to keep the dog from getting too anxious. He didn’t do too bad last year.

    Okay….I’m feeling the nudge of the knots! Stop that! I have enough to try and make and put in my pieces, but now I’m feeling the need for knots!!! Maybe just an index card will be enough to get it out of my system?

    Planning a quiet 4th – usually the weather isn’t great around here on the 4th, so I’ll probably stay in and art the day away. Yahoo!

    Your fiber artistery is as wonderful as your painting. Looking forward to see your progress – both on this piece and all the ones that may or may not follow!

    Loving this little glimpse into what you have been working on. Hot coffee fills the bill better here on this cool cloudy day. Give your thunder dog a tight hug from me. Be well.

    Hi Corrine! I remember learning a french knot for the first time…it took me forever to get the hang of it..I was working on a nose for a doll my daughter and I were working on. You seem to have mastered them! The yellow is a great contrast. Happy creating, you are always up to something beautiful and bright. 🙂

    Your yellow knots are fantastic – especially on that background- it makes them pop!! Over a 100 today and humid- yuck! At least we don’t have to mow the lawn. Don’t know if we’ll have any fireworks due to how dry everything is here- and they are what I love about the 4th. Guess we’ll just have to watch them on tv.

    Thank you so much for your well wishes Corrine. We just arrived back home in CA. Love all your french knots! Wow! You love them so much! I’ve done a little embroidery many years ago……a few french knots but who knows if i was doing them right……maybe you could do a little tutorial??? Hugs! deb

    I love it! The stitching is perfect on top of your painting! It gives it even more texture! Love the paint colors, too.
    Super hot here, too! And my dog is hiding under the bed during the fireworks in my neighborhood! It’s almost like a war zone here!
    Take care and have a happy and safe holiday!
