A Bee

A friend asked me to show her how to stitch a bee using Sue Spargo's book   Creative Stitching    . Great book! But I thought I should try it before I tried to teach her. After all, it needs bullion knots! Here is my attempt on a piece of denim:
I used a Tulip needle and it was much easier to make the bullion knots. Here is a link to Mary Corbet where she discusses them:
Tulip Needles
Yes, I would recommend them. I ordered some with a friend. If I did not get the other sizes of milliners, I will be ordering some. The one I used was wonderful.
 I think I will be pulling out Reptiles. A friend and I were discussing rotations and I may be changing mine up next week. We will see. Have a great weekend!
