A few of us in Stitch Twelve had copies of "Threadworks" by Effie Mitrofanis - silks, stitches, beads and cords. When Sarah said she would like to visit India I knew this afforded me the opportunity to dip into Effie's book and when I asked Sharon if we could please have Bullions this month, she again obliged (Effie does like her bullions).
My second effort involved linked bullion stitches, 20/24 wraps using perle 8, with a raised chain band worked on the links using Kreinik metallic thread.
With considerable help, guidance and encouragement from Debra I dusted off my Embrodiery Module (got it out from its original wrapping), downloaded an image, loaded this onto my machine, pressed "go", sat back and hey presto I now have the Taj Mahal for my facing page (it really was a little more complicated than that). Wished I had trimmed that rh side, but was anxious to get it stitched.
