I just want to put this out into the universe: I love you, Dawn. I will miss you. I know that I will see you later. Just please forgive me for not being there for you this time.
To everyone that sees this, all I have to say...Don't let your friends get away from you. No matter what you have to do. I learned my lesson the hard way.

I think that I have mastered the french knot. Ha! Its made with felt and the original is sewn on the sewing machine, but since I don't have a sewing machine I stitched it all up by hand. I am quite proud of this. Its definately not perfect, but is soooo dang cute. I have started to make the second one in the pattern and I think I will make more in different colors. This one is going on my desk at work just so that I can look at it. But I think I will make a few for gifts. My oldest step-daughter just got a new sewing machine and I think one of these will make a great little pincushion.

I mostly used back stitch and stem stitch. Its done on an old white linen I had for my cross stitch and never used.
Here are my first stitches in stem stitch. I had so much fun with this. I only did an outline version of this pattern. I hope to do some more with more advanced embroidery stitches. I might even find a use for this on my knitting. Here is the final version.I got this pattern at http://zuill.us/andreablog/2008/01/04/gnome-the-embroidery-pattern-for-january/
I think its cute as a button. I hope to do more of this. (Sorry for the crappy pictures, no sun today.)
