CQJP & TAST week 16

This weeks stitch for Take A Stitch Tuesday  http://pintangle.com/tast-faq/ was French Knot…also known as French dot, knotted stitch, twisted knot stitch and wound stitch.  All but the wound stitch seemed appropriate.  I had only used this stitch as the center of flowers on pillowcases so I tried it as an outline for some cactus shapes.

On the third quarter of my April Crazy Quilt Journal Project http://www.cqjp2012.blogspot.com/ I already had some rickrack.  This quarter is very simple with only the addition of a little running stitch and French knot stitches.

We left Yuma, Az and are now in Vacaville, CA waiting to visit our daughter Cindy when she arrives home from  San Miguel, Mexico where she and the veterinarian she works with have been doing a teaching trip to an under served area.  They do more trips in the USA. Read about this program at
