If anyone is stitching or has completed Marriage of the Minds, I’d really appreciate some help. I’ve just started stitching it with the presecribed NPI silks. The design says to use 1 silk thread over 2 fabric threads. I tried that, but wasn’t happy with the coverage on the fabric, so stitched a little of the pattern with 2/2. The fabric is Zweigart 32 count Clay.Here’s what it looks like:
I’m a beginner with silk threads and they handle very differently to cotton. I’ve noticed that using 2/2 the threads tend to twist more.
Question: Should I follow the original instructions and stitch 1/2? I’m worried about not getting the result I want 😦 I’ve invested $$ in the silks, so want it to finish well and it’s my 25th wedding anniversary sampler. My feeling is to continue with the 2/2
I really need your advice, please!
