I Hate Rayon Thread But

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!
