These are really, really beautiful, I love them. The look a little like punchneedle embroidery that I was trying out a few weeks ago. It has that same hooked rug type of texture to it. Somebody in that swap is going to be very lucky.

greetingarts said...

I gasped when I saw those, seriously freakin' gasped. *Such* a good job, but did I say you were supposed to send in 5? I meant 10, of course, 5 for the hostess and 5 to swap out... didn't I mention that? Hee hee. I have a weakness for French knots.

Rebekah said...

Wow that is a lot of work and beautiful. I just finished mine for the same swap. I can not wait to see what everyone gets.

Silvia said...

Wow! There's such a lot of work in those. They look fabtastic (oops - a typo, but a good word to describe them anyway).

au revoir,
