With the evenings getting longer, I'm already getting a bit in the winter mood, and red is the perfect winter colour to me. So I bought a cheap tablecloth to exercise my embroidery a bit. For the eyes of the rabbit I tried my first french knots. If you want to try this, use this tutorial, it's great. It took me a bit of cursing and trying again and again, but here is the result. Not that bad for a first time. And Ward was watching my progress with a lot of interest. This afternoon, my dear husband found these wooden spools in an old cupboard in the garage. I think this box belonged to my grandmother.
