I used a single strand of black, cotton, DMC embroidery thread, waxed, this time. It worked better than the Nymo beading thread. I stitched through each bead twice, and I stitched across each opening, diagonally. That way, these #10 seed beads ‘sit IN the mesh, instead of on top of it. These little double hearts also came from a larger design offered by the Cross-stitchers’ Club.
