Needlepoint Specialty Threads will do the work for you! I used Rainbow Gallery's Water n' Ice for the window panes. Windows are a great place to use a specialty thread for a reflective look. I used Edmar Boucle for the flower vine next to the window. I am "French Knot" challenged. Boucle is the answer!! Hope you try a Needlepoint Specialty Threads to give your next canvas some punch.
