Helen is creating a red rose using bullion stitches for padding and to create the curve of an opening bud. The trick is to use DMC's rayon thread to create the bullions.
I don't mind doing bullion stitches but I loathe rayon threads. Still, this looks pretty durn good....
I never would have thought to try rayon threads for bullions. Or covered padding with what appears to be blanket stitch to make the petals. Very creative, Helen!
