it also has wonderful directions and photos of how to accomplish each stitch.
Believe me if I can learn form these instructions --they are very well written :) I could hardly wait to get started. I chose a few patterns, traced them onto my tracing paper with a special embroidery transfer pencil and began to embroider.
The instructions said to use between 3-6 strands of floss--I chose 6----bad decision because my first attempt did not go so well.
Too many strands of floss--the outline is way to thick. Oh well try again.......This time using 3 strands of floss.
I still have lots of practicing to do but not bad for my first attempt. I think I am going to like this embroidery thing. Oh no, more supplies that I will need to collect :) I may have to build on another room on our house just to store everything.
