I'd sell my mother to pirates for nice thin lines like that.  There is nothing wrong with experimenting until you find a style or method that works well for you.

It looks great for your first attempt but if I am allowed to make one critical observation it would be to leave yourself more blank space around the edges of your work so you can frame it properly or sew it into a quilt or something.  Leaving space around the edges also makes it much easier to put into a hoop and reposition it so it has the proper tension on the fabric.  This is something I learned the hard way on a cheap thin piece of cotton Sad
