Bullion Knots etc.

Earlier I posted a photo from Pinterest of a piece of hand stitching using lots of bullion knots. I have really enjoyed a little bit of therapeutic stitchery! Just pile upon pile of knots and beads!

Take a stitch, wind the thread round the needle 10 to 15 times and gently pull the needle through

Pull the knots along the thread until they are lying flat on the fabric. Take the needle down into the fabric.

Begin another stitch.

Here are my first attempts at multiple stitches with beads, French Knots and long tail Fly Stitch.

Now I am going to produce one for my next Travelling Book!
