Ahh, French Knots....

I've been working on these little blocks (pillow things) this week.I'm almost finished. Just a few more stitches and some beading. I love french knots and this little lamb was perfect for just such a stitch. I'm using a variegated floss that sadly is no longer on the market. I like how subtle the color changes are and the soft colors in it.
This block is from my hand dyed velvet. It's so squishy and soft - it's great to work with - it gives a lot of texture to the block. I hope you are having a nice week, too.
