TAST WEEK 20..... Bullion stitch

Hello everyone, So sorry this is late, but I have been away for a few days, visiting my son in Brighton......what a place ! Such amazing things going on there.......there was a mini car rally, while we where there....the place was heaving !! My son is just about to finish his degree at The Brighton School of Modern music, I digress..............
Anyway this is my rather late sample of the 'BULLION STITCH'. I decided to use a very long 'DOLL' sewing needle, about 7 inches long to do the bullion stitches and had great fun doing them ! This stitch is quite a complex stitch to do, but luckily I have been doing them for many years so they were'nt a problem for me.....



I hope you like my little beaded tree, and thank you all for visiting my blog !!!!

  7. You've got lots of structure and movement in this stunning piece. Love the long bullions and the beads. The talk of Brighton brought back memories of MY school days.

  8. Just love your tree - everything about it is so good. I especially like the colours and the texture is amazing - I'in awe of how you have done those really long bullion stitches. I found it really hard to do even little ones but your work inspires me to keep trying.

  9. I love the idea of the long bullions. I'll have to get one of those doll needles. I like how you've twisted them around each other.
