She's stitched with silk and cotton threads which are my favorite for hand work. Au Ver A Soie 3 ply silk is a dream to work with. If you haven't tried it I highly recommend it. The shop I use to get it from stopped carrying it but you can order on line. The color range is very large so I don't have to dye myself. But with that said it is fun to dye floss and threads for unique colors. So I do that sometimes too. Do you have a favorite thread?
