Oui ou Non?

When is a French Knot something else entirely?

Whenever Joanne’s in town, she’s as likely as not to drop into Needlepoint Land for the Wednesday Stitch-Mania session.

Now earlier this week, she decided to use French Knots on her Yellow Brick Road ornament.

As I understand it, she was suddenly gripped with a lack of self-confidence crisis about the whole thing. Plus which, she decided they were too bulky.

Then Joanne had a brilliant idea.

Why not invent a whole new stitch?

So today, Joanne came into Needlepoint Land to drop off her now stitched masterpiece for finishing, and explained to me what she ended up doing.

I was in awe.

I have no doubt that Joanne’s new stitch is going to take the needlepoint world by storm — for its name, if not for anything else.

It’s called French Nots.

It’s the one to use when you just need to get there already.

Not!
