Tast Bullion Stitch
Well I did not know when I started
this Tast I would learn so many new stitches and so many different ways
of using them. For some really good examples go to Sharon's web site here.
My selection of bullion stitch. A versatile stitch many comments on it being worm like. I can see this but also roses of which I have not mastered yet. With a bit of experiment I like the way that if you do not pull the stitch to tight when putting it in its place you can make it curl.I can see that with a bit more practice it may be possible to manipulate it more.
A close up of my stitch the needle that I used for the long straight bullion is 1.1/2 inches, and the straight bullion is 1 inch. I also used this needle with the green thread and it curled really nicely. The pink is wool and I think it loses the lines. The blue and red are two threads mixed together.
