Every Inchie Monday -- Wheat

Wheat is the challenge on Every Inchie Monday this week. I have drawn a wheat kernel, showing the structure, and a few ears of wheat. For the sewn one, I used bullion knots for the ears of wheat and stem stitch for the stalks.

These are great ways to show off your all your different talents and create something with "wheat"!

your inchie had me racing to you tube to see what bullion knots are - I've been embroidering since I was a child and I've never seen that stitch - looks a lot like a long French knot - I'm going to try it. great inchies - the kernel of wheat is a great idea

Lovely bullion knots - it's along time since I worked one. I like the inclusion of the diagram explaining the components of a wheat grain.
