Give away week day 5



On this friday the 13th I wish you all a peaceful day. The gift of today is special because it is the first I made with raffia. Embroidery with raffia!!! The stitch I used is called a french knot.




Some detail pictures.







If you would like to win leave a comment and the winner will be announced next friday.

This was the first give away week. I enjoyed making all the objects and each is special to me.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you on monday.

Yet another beautiful piece. I love the message and all the little french knots.

Your work is wonderful and soothing.

I, too, love the message. Your stitching is lovely and I haven't ever heard of stitching with raffia before! The results are great. I used to embroider years ago...but still do a lot of stitching. ~Lisa ;-)

That "peace" is beautiful. Aside from that, I can't make a french knot to save my life. Mine just come out like bad, bad, knots. I would love to study yours.
