Take a Stitch Tuesday

I really like the Bullion Knot Stitch.  I don't often remember to use it, unfortunately.  I added the Bullion to this seascape and think it works well.  I guess you can't really tell that from this photo as it is so close up.  I used some hand dyed silk thread and some regular cotton threads.

Good contrast between the various kinds of thread. Have you ever tried to make a bullion knot with ribbon embroidery ribbon? I have just used Bullion Knots on my cq block and used a stranded silk floss, which slides easily off the needle. A 'willing' thread is the key to success.
