Yesterday, I went to stitch with Margot. She was awesome - had everything set out including books and various sized threads. I came away with a Bullion Knot! I tried it before and sadly failed. This time, I nailed it! : ) Awesome. Thank you Margot. Cat tails, here I come!

Tada! There you go. You can make them as long or short as you like, with as many or little wraps as you choose. If you wrap ten times onto a long ending stitch, it will look like a cat-tail. If you wrap ten times on the perfect length, it looks like a wormy. : ) If you wrap ten times and don't stitch far at all, then it loops itself, which would be very pretty in a floral piece perhaps!
Have a good one!
