French knot number 999..the Spring jute project is complete!!

No whining this time!! ( big,big smile). All's good!!

I hope you still remember the embroidery on jute. If not, at the end of the post, I'll link back to the older posts in this project. You could give it a try if you like it :)

So, I've stitched up 1000 or more french knots. I feel that I've reached a stage where I can stop knotting..
There she is...

The idea was to just feel the joy of spring and the flowers floating down...

This will go back to Simone who gifted me this fabric. Hopefully it'll either be framed on stitched on to a bag. If framed, I am envisioning this piece in an oval frame. What do you think?

The flowers were stitched with Anchor variegated Perl cotton.With some planning I was able to keep the yellow flowers together and the whites at the bottom. 

Whenever I see the pictures I click, I feel the need to take up a photography course. More so when I see some of the Instagram pictures and blog posts of my fellow embroiderers. What should I do to take better pictures? I'll have to google and learn a bit. That's another item in the to-learn list.

Anyways, now its back to the Brazilian embroidery piece. 

And oh, forgot to tell week we are visiting Amsterdam and the very famous Tulip gardens!!  Flowers everywhere..yoohooo!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful Easter and an amazing Spring!!!

Love,luck and sunshine,

The mass of knots make this a wonderful design.
Enjoy the tulips of Holland.
Have a nice holiday and be safe. This stitched piece is perfection. Will I EVER make perfect French Knots like yours?

Pretty impressive French knots! And I agree - oval frame for sure. Hope you enjoy the tulips and share some pictures with us (who are still a long way from seeing any).

Loved your French knots.. variegated thread made it more beautiful ..

Photography tips I learned from experience is the importance of day light .. not the direct sunlight , if your u can't use natural day light, try to use day light lamp..

Dslr camera is a good investment,but you can always trust your latest smart phones for good pics can really help you improve your photographs

Superb Deepa. I don't know how I miss this post. French knots looks beautiful as if they are lying on the ground.
