They look gnarled and not easy to do with just long and shirt stitches ….i was thinking out loud, how about clusters of tiny french knots? In mixed colors, of course…. in any event, love this project, i have to confess the body is giving me problems, but love it still. Thank you so much for inspiring us!!!

We will see Reply Leave a Reply to Trang Folliot Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
