Experiments with threads

Yesterday evening I practiced my bullion knots and tried various types of thread and colors. Here are some of my tries at various lengths and angles.

White crochet thread, blue green silk floss and pink cotton floss


Floss in two colors


Perle cotton #5 two colors


Overdyed cotton 2 threads mismatched


Overdyed cotton 2 threads matched


As you can see I’ve plenty of room for improvement! Back to practicing…

    Just knew that you would come up with something special for the bullion knots. I love watching your experiments, mistakes and all. A mistake is only a design possibility after all. I especially love the textures you have with the buttons. Keep on stitching Elizabeth.
