4th weeks stitches

This week's stitches are

3rd October

Bullion

French knots

most of you will know how to do bullions and for those who do not here is
a link to Mary Corbet's video.

Now while I watched it, I did not have the sound on so I am not sure if
Mary suggested letting the thread dangle to remove the twist in the
thread...it helps.
Another suggestion if the thread twists is to give it a few reverse twists
before pulling through the thread. (try on a spare cloth first).

Mary has great tutes on various stitches - check them out too.

Here is the direct link.

just scroll down a little way - it is not the first video on the page.

I'm sorry I didn't get these out last week as storms put our power out for 2 days and then I forgot about them.
