I am so touched by the thoughtful response I received from Chilly Hollow Needlepoint. I saw on her blog that she added fingers to her adorable Golden Rabbit using a bullion stitch. This stitch is one of the ones that has been plaguing me for my second dragon, as it’s in my stitch guide but I can’t figure out how to get it right. I posted a comment asking for tips on the bullions and she thoughtfully replied back with some suggestions. Then this morning I was blown away by her long, detailed post with several tips for bullions. I am completely floored by her response to my questions. Thanks so much!!!! I will definitely be practicing my bullions this weekend!
I’ve been working on the head portion of my dragon in 3 parts. Since last time, I’ve stitched the ear (satin stitch) and the face (continental). I also stitched the eye in a black satin stitch. I covered over the dot the artist had left in the middle of the eye and plan on adding a bead later. I haven’t picked out the bead yet, but there’s a wonderful beading store in town that I look forward to visiting!
Happy Memorial Day Weekend everyone!
