hand embroidery thread
I haven't done this craft since I was a little girl and I'd love to try it again. I found a great book at the library of patterns. My question is about the thread. If I use 6 strand embroidery thread, how many strands do I use to stitch? The patterns are floral and some are small wreaths.
I do counted cross stitch so I have tons of thread. Is there a better thread to use than DMC floss? Any help is appreciated.
