TAST week 20 - bullion knot



This week for Take a Stitch Tuesday we visited with a beautiful stitch, the bullion knot!  The usual thing with bullion knot is to use it to form flowers or flower buds, so I decided that I'd make a starfish to go along with the underwater theme of my manipulated fabric quilt


So why does it look like a flower, you ask?   Because the best laid plans of needle and thread...


It looks like a flower because it is one.  Despite my resolve to be creative, I fell prey to the floral charms of this stitch.  I also didn't do a very good job keeping the wrappings even.  I'm going to have a go at it with a needle and see if I can get them to lie a bit better.  But just in case I screw them all up, I thought I'd share the picture now!  More practice in my future :-)
