So, finally, these little blow up shots for my brazillian embroidery class. First is this nifty little flower made from bullion knots.
Bullions look really complicated, but are fairly simple – a good diagram is here: http://inaminuteago.com/stitchdict/stitch/Bullion.html (however, I do it slightly different – I’ll have to do a tutorial at some point!).
And then the leaves – just a satin stitch, but done at a very precise angle to meet thread int he middle.
I have to admit, I do love Edmar thread and it’s not horrible to work with once you kind of get the feel for it.
