Swirls on a design always throw me, even worse when I do it to myself on my own design! So late last night I had one of those blinding flashes of 'try this you crazy lady' These are tiny bullions with Soie Perlee, actually easier than you think because the silk slides so easily. I did find that I had to spin my needle between my fingers to un twirl the thread between each bullion.
Right away, I felt this was going to look awesome. I have ripped out the little green stems...too fuzzy.
