TAST Week 20


This week's TAST is the Bullion Knot stitch. Another lucky week for me! First of all, it's one of my favorite stitches. It's really not anywhere as difficult as some people make it out to be. Secondly, in a week that I barely have time to do any embroidery, I have something from the past to show.

I wrote about it in this blog post over a year ago. My daughter had a baby a few days ago and I'm not home until Sunday. I couldn't find any of my original photos for this project on my laptop, so I tried to get you a closeup of the bullion section using the Picassa online image. If you click on the link for the original blog post, you can see the whole piece and the photo I copied it from. 

Don't forget to notice the French Knots in the center! :) I'll try to amend with a better photo when I get home on Sunday.



Enjoy!

Debbie
