Take a Stitch Tuesday

Sharon B has us doing the French Knot this week. I think I have done a million French Knots over the years!  For a long time, I just didn't get how to do a French Knot properly.  My sister, Nancy is a very accomplished needlewoman and it was her instruction that clicked in my brain.  I did this tree last year by the end of it I was pretty tired of the French Knot!

It's a great tree.
Yes, you need to find instructions that you feel comfortable with, that is why I have several stitch dictionaries to find my favorite way.
Maybe the key to these repetitive stitches is to do them for only ten minutes at a time, take a long break and return for another set of ten minutes.
