Editors Note: For a more modern look, experiment with a combination of threads and textures. Variegated threads can add interest as can metallic, rayon or silk threads for that added sheen and sparkle. Using matching colors in different mediums lets you introduce texture into your work. Perhaps consider some textured stitches??
When I look at this picture, I think the cats could be done in 8 strands of Stranded Cotton for a glossy fur like sheen, stitch the ball of wool with 4 Ply Tapestry wool to make it really look like wool! Mixing the mediums and stitches would add some extra interest to the piece and provide the more experienced stitcher with a bit more of a challenge.
