it looks stunning, you did a great job.
I only work with 1 strand on 25 count fabric.I think it depends on how tight you stitch, and your own cover preferences , as to wither you stitch with 1 or 2 strands.

Your finish is gorgeous. I love that chart now!!! As for stitching with two strands, I use two strands over one on twenty eight count, but I'm doing tent stitch, which looks exactly like half stitches. If the count is bigger, eighteen count for example, I use two strands for better coverage. And I think your English is pretty good. I understood everything you said! Welcome to the blog!!

You did an awesome job on this piece! I also stitch with 1 strand of floss on 25ct but lately I found that it is much esier for me to stitch on 22ct and for this type of fabric I'm using 2 threads. What will be your next project?

It's wonderful! I use 1 strand of floss on 25 ct, too.
