French Knot island

Hello, back to my old favourite - the french knot. There is something very pleasing about this little stitch. Though I admit when I was first introduced to its ways I struggled (kept pulling the stitch back through, such that it disappeared - drat!). Anyways, I digress, now me & the french knot are good friends! Here I have used french knots in various threads (sewing thread, embroidery floss, wools and cut up ribbon) in similar colours close together to create a piece. For a piece of material with so many needle holes through, it is surprisingly sturdy. I think it looks like a little island, with woolen french knot mountains in the distance... but that might just be me :)
