Tree Using French Knots & Back Stitch.
I hope to try this technique again with the French Knots less dense.
Because my blocks were already made before I added the trees, I used a small hoop. The hoop seems to have stretched the satin fabric. I tried blotting with water and it worked on the cotton fabric but not on the satin. I don't think ironing is going to help either. Oh well - it is what it is.
