This is only the second thing I have ever tried to cross stitch. It's a card for valentines day.
Basically, I started yesterday with an area that required one strand but wasn't pleased with it so scrapped the whole thing. This morning I started it with a different colour and just used one strand. I've managed to do quite a lot, with fractionals which I'm really pleased with myself for learning. BUT...looking again the directions say to do it with two strands.
Will it matter greatly if I now continue with one strand for the lot, or should I do it with two from now on? I can't scrap this again now. It's a lion, the background should be one strand, the lion should be two. Basically a light area of it's face has been done in one.
I hope that makes sense.
