Bullion Garden

Week 20 of TAST – bullion stitch.
I love doing bullions but all I could come up with was flowers.
This is it – A Bullion Garden
A Bullion Garden
Thank you to Shirley who reminded me about twisted silk ribbon and who told me about the border stitch, detached bullion.  I started off a bit wobbly with it but got better as I got around the border.  I love this stitch and will definitely use it again some time. 
Au revoir for now, there may be a short break in transmission as Hubby and I head off on an adventure into the bush.
Internet connection may be non – existent where we are going but if by any chance I get some more TAST stitching done and I have connection I will post it up.
Pop over to Sharon b’s site www.pintangle.com and see all the other amazing bullion pieces.

Your bullion garden is gorgeous Di, and you did a good job of the border. Hope you get a chance to stitch while away.

Gorgeous work, Di. I saw it on Stitchin Fingers this morning and love it.
Happy travelling, and hope you do get some internet service at times. Will be waiting to hear about your trip.

Another lovely sampler Di, and such precious colours. I love bullion flowers, there is just something about them!! I really like the background fabric too.

Hope the travels are fun, and the weather is pleasant while you are away. It would be great if you find some internet service and join us at some stage. We will be watching for you........LOL.... Safe trip.

Dianne, your sample is beautiful and so charming. I looked at it enlarged - so, so good. Every stitch is lovely and I admire your border. I never thought of using ribbons for bullions, the effect is great.
