Lots of knots, the Bullion and French kind. My love of French knots is well known but I have had a kind of re awakening of my love of Bullion knots thanks to Deanna, (Deanna is ever present in Karen's world in case you haven't noticed) It was during one of my classes that Deanna mentioned she would love to know how to do them and would I show her...so thanks Deanna. They were long neglected here at one time and now they are taking over and are probably here to stay or at least appear frequently! It was because of my addiction to knots that I started my little group on flickr. Well it isn't really my group, I started it for everyone else who loves knots too, (knots of the embroidered kind that is) I have been trying to invite everyone I know but am convinced I have missed people out and also...you don't have to know me to join so I will mention it again here...just request an invite, simple as that...to do that click here and whilst you are there have a look at the amazing pictures that are in there already.
Finally...my wrapping cloth class embroider, embellish, create starts soon, May 1. I would hate anyone to miss out on that as there are only a few places left. We have had two fantastic groups so far who have created amazing pieces of embellished cloth, truly gorgeous embroidery. If you do want to read more and follow links to images from the earlier groups than just go here for all the information you need. Classes start on May 1 and the blog goes live this coming Monday so that people can familiarise themselves with the resources on there.
