    Using a double thread is smart but if you're not careful enough, you can mess it up.

    Ruth belongs atop the highest peak in sewing-land.

    Her balm can calm thread, and sewer, alike.

    No more double-thread dread here.

    I looked up "beading thread" and it comes in many sizes. What size did you use?
