Actually I think the bullion knots look like dragonflies the way you have put them together with other stitches.

Debra Spincic said...

that works! I did get a "bug" feeling when working on them-the bullion knot would make a good body part.

I agree with Lady H. Cool dragonflies......much nicer than what my DH calls them:-- worms!
Your faux shisha looks good! A button is a great idea.

Carol Neale-Broughton said...

Yep, dragonflies for me, please no more worms! Really like the idea of shisha buttons and may well try one or two on a button cluster. Thanks.

Nice Shisha. I still need to work on that one. I like your little winged bullion insects! I am realizing there are lots of possibilities for this stitch.

The bullion knot whatever's are so darn cute. That is a great seam treatment combination too. Great variety.
Congrats on your shisha. Nicely done.

Judy S. said...

Very nice shisha! Your bullions remind me of the center of a lily, but dragon flies work, too. Whatever, it's a pretty seam.

I plan to develop this into a button cluster.

Had lunch with Angela today and we nabbed some shisha mirrors at JoAnn Fabrics so I am set!

Debra Spincic said...

Funny how one comment can influence everyone! My dragonflies and Connie's hotdogs . . .

Thanks, y'all. The shisha is going to undergo more transformation but I like to get all the embroidery done before I do embellishments.

You'll enjoy the shisha and it would be pretty with your neutrals.

Love your bullion knots. I was thinking more along the lines of bees, or wasps, though.

I like the bright and cheerful colors for this seam. The shisha button is really interesting--it does look like the center of a flower. That might account for the dragonflies!

Debra Spincic said...

I didn't see it that way at all but I could certainly develop it to look more flowerlike. See, it's so good to get this weekly feedback!
