I did this one a long time ago. You can't really see the stitching on it, but I did use some gold thread. I have since got some thicker floss for these. I used stripes and dots paper.
For those of you asking, my son has his appointment scheduled for next Thursday June 11 and we should get the results back within 24 hours. He has been terribly sick the last couple days and has not ate a thing- when he does eat, it comes right back up. He doesn't have a temp, which I guess is good and he has been drinking a lot to keep him hydrated.
