Lazy daisy and french knot sampler

Just a quick post to show you a little sampler I have made as a Christmas present.  I drew small circles on the fabric, and did the lazy daisy stitches around the edge of the circle, instead of the traditional way (like in my embroidered stocking).  I then filled out the middle of each flower with french knots.

I have never done french knots before this project, but this tutorial by Sublime Stitching gives very clear instructions.  They are much easier than I thought they were!
