A Guide to Stitches and Threads

Mary copied an idea she saw on NP Nation to help organize what threads go where on her complex painted canvas of Christmas ornaments.

Basically, she sketched each ornament roughly, wrote beside each drawing the color number for the thread she wanted to use there, and included a length of the right thread.  That makes it easy to grab the right thread as she stitches.  Less hunting, less frustration, more stitching fun!
