French knot lemon




I made this lemon on the spur of the moment well over a year ago, and have shamefully let it sit around, unframed and naked, since then. I just recently got around to finding a hoop that it fits in and getting it all finished up, and even though I am now back in Scotland this embroidery has stayed in California with my dad. We have a lemon tree around the side of the house, and at several times during the year there is an EMBARRASSMENT of riches lemons, and my dad has taken on the task of wrangling them all. He is definitely the King of Lemons, and the best person to take care of this little lemon pal :)

p.s. I still find french knots ridiculously difficult, even after all these!
