Bullion Knot Hair

Needle Nicely just stitched an angel on congress cloth for a customer who requested bullion knot hair. The shop used two plies of DMC cotton.   It looks terrific but apparently the DMC wasn't as easy to work with in bullions as Watercolours.  It's been my experience that the right thread for bullions makes them a lot easier to work.  I like wools especially well for this sort of thing.

Speaking of bullion knots reminds me I just discovered that Gay Ann Roger's booklet on creating bullions is still on sale on her website for $13 including shipping.  Since her big yearly sale is coming up, I'd advise you buy this now if you are interested.
