Getting knotty

A quick post as I’ve not had much time to do much embroidery this week.

I’ve been playing with golden and cream threads using knots including oversized bullion knots. If you’ve only used bullion knots to make roses then try wrapping lots of thread round your needle and watch it bend, twist and add a new dimension to your work.

Also been playing with thread wrapping but I’ll talk about that another day.
