I ❤ embroidery . . . For the variation you will need two working threads. Either knot both ends of a strand, or thread 2 strands of floss in your milliners needle. Come up at A. Go down at B & bring the point of the needle back up at A but do not pull through. Arrange your threads so one lies on the left & one on the right. Pick up the left thread with the right hand. Make a twist around the left index finger & drop the loop on the point of the needle . . .
