TAST

Some more lazy daisy stitches for the Take a Stitch Tuesday challenge.

The next picture is a sample I did for my OCA Textiles course... I used lazy daisy stitches, French knots and cross stitches. I think that between these three stitches, French knot is my favourite.

I really like the bottom scene. It is so dreamy. I like french knots too. They are so cool and really add texture.

Great work! I love french knots the best too. I love to combine them with seed beads on a lot of my work.

Your stitchery is beautiful.
The one with dark blue background is just gourgeous.

Fantastic work Francoise and such a variety, The textured detached chain sample is wonderful, but so is the dainty piece with French knots.
