TAST week 27 Bullion Knot

Bullion stitch- I have to admit is not my favourite stitch but in saying that I must admit that I managed to do my sample without too many hitches.
I have not ventured away from doing flowers as I wanted to get this over and done with- without to much pain.
I have used cream wool blanketing as my fabric and and Perle cotton for the Lavender flowers and the Rose and Perle Crown Rayon thread for the stems and leaves.
I used Broder Cotton thread for the yellow flower.





I should be able to approach the rest of the challenge without any problems because the two stitches that I like the least are finished .....and I am early getting this week's stitch done so now I am free to start playing again.

I quite like bullion stitch probably because I've used it so much on smocking. It makes lovely flowers doesn't it. I like the top left one.

Very beautiful Doreen, the little bluebells (lavender flowers) would really be beautiful on a little card.

Pretty flowers Doreen! I especially like the bottom one (maybe because I love purple?)
