WIP - Wednesday 08-08-2007 and Jacob

Today I spent time learning how to do french knots. All the years (over 25) I have done needlepoint I have not been able to do french knots. I got it today thanks to Sharon B's In A Minute Ago Blog

Here is a few close ups of the french knots and beading.

Jacob found these PVC tubes and was playing with them. It is funny because it looks like an antenna on his forehead. Jacob many be having seizures caused by abnormal electrical disturbances in the brain. Maybe this can help this short circuiting. He is so cute! I am happy he is feeling better and back to his normal goofy self. I hated seeing him hooked up to tubes in the hospital just a short time ago.

:-) not so sure PVC will do much for short circuiting -- my homeless friends tell me a tin foil cap is better :-)

I smiled re the french knots. Every time I do them I have to re-learn as I forget where exactly I'm to twist around the thread and then I end up with no knot....

Oh he's handsome!

I've been epileptic for (oh God, really??) twenty years now - I had my first seizure when I was sixteen.

If it comes to that diagnosis, feel free to email me if you want someone to talk to.

He's a real cutie, although I doubt a boy his age will appreciate that adjective.

So glad Jacob is feeling better, hope the doctors get things figured out soon.

I didn't get to comment sooner, but I did say some prayers for Jacob. I hope the doctors can quickly discover what is wrong with him.

French Knots can be intimidating. I think they are my least favorite stitch to do.

OMG, Jacob is so cute!! What a beautiful smile. He just exudes playfulness and happiness. I hope whatever it is, it isn't too serious.

My mom taught me to do French knots when I was a kid and I still love them. Your flowers look great.

I'm glad he's better!
