I used a regular #5 hook w/ #10 thread.

I need to google and see what a bullion hook is all about :)


Thanks for looking all :)

It's gorgeous! I have no idea what a bullion stitch is, and it looks difficult, so I don't think I want to know!

That is just lovely! I just for the first time last week used that stitch to complete a baby hat brim and loved it!
