It's art because they are all different and all hand made. 0_0

I've been embroidering since I was a child, maybe eight or nine and I can't do French knots. I have followed every tute and instruction and nope!  :headbang:
I like the Monet stylee ones and the bee and the church...and some of the others....

I can remember a time when I used to get a fad for doing something after seeing it done really well.  Unfortunately embroidery was one of many things discarded because it was okay but not brilliant.

The things that defeat us... I love French knots. Did a project once that involved hundreds, if not thousands of the things. Nice texture.

BUT! In fifty years of sewing, I have yet to put in a zipper that I am not ashamed of.

The Monet #9 is the best of all.....more attractive colours...the rest are too vibrant for me....as for whether art or embroidery....for me it is both!

Whatever they are, they are amazing. Not my cup of tea really but very very skilled - those french knots are incredible!
