Bullion knots

Yesterday I finally learned how to do a bullion knot. I watched the video at Needlenthread.com about 50 times before I felt brave enough. I tore it out at least five times before I was satisfied, and this is what I ended up with. I'm a little unhappy that the seeds in the apple are so uneven, but overall, I am proud of the way they turned out. I definitely will need to work harder at them before I will ever be able to list anything with them in it. I love the look though.

Today my goal is to clean my house. My hours got cut at work, so here I am sitting on my butt 2-3 days a week. I definitely need to be more productive, so my goal is to pick up and vacuum. I also need to do some laundry and finish some embroidery. I'm working on a trio of ties with a different pattern on each one.
