The other day I saw these on Pinterest, pattern by Claire at Haken en Meer, and I had to make my own. Now before you see the pictures, I must tell you that I am a complete novice at embroidery. Just today I learned how to make french knots. My technique is terrible, but for my first try I’m pretty pumped. This is the leftover yarn from my afghan, posted previously.

Now I just have to coat the back of them with something to make them keep their shape, attach a hanging device of some sort (perhaps just a loop of yarn), and hang them up! I’m thinking in my bedroom, because there’s really nothing on the walls in there and it’s gloomy.
These are a little different than Claire’s — I used hdc for the circles instead of dc and tried to find embroidery patterns on the Internet. A few of them came from here, and the others were just Google search results.
I hope you like them! I have no idea what’s coming up soon — I’ll have to start something new! See you soon!
