French Knots

Four Thousand French Knots

One Thousand French Knots

Fifteen Hundred French Knots

As artists and designers we can all get a little obsessed when it comes to our work, but Jeana Eve Klein has taken it to a whole new level with her French knot embroideries. The pieces are composed entirely of hand-stitched French knots and then name accordingly. She describes them as, "a humorous poke at my own obsessive compulsions for hand-work." I love the dedication, attention to detail and beautiful colors. Be sure to also check out more of Jeana Eve Klein's work like her mixed media quilts and altered embroideries.
