the process is slow and there so much to absorb..
In this piece I experimented; double threaded backstitch; where I also learnt that, while passing the thread in opposite direction through the backstitch it is so easy to pick the adjoining stitches if you are not careful. The instructions does point that too.
And, in basic couching I used regular embroidery floss but the book mentions that there is couching thread, but I think you can use any thread that suits the pattern and the fabric. Whipped stem stitch is done similarly to threaded backstitch.
Happy Valentine's Day !!
