This Whispered by the Wind piece is my newest start. I've had the chart for several years, one of those someday projects. Now that I am retired, someday is finally here. I am using the recommended WDW Blue Spruce. I have 6 skeins in the same dye lot. Both chart and floss were gifts from a Secret Sister exchange. Instead of the recommended 28 count antique white linen, I am using 28 count white Monaco. It's been a long time since I have used this 100% cotton fabric. I'd forgotten how sturdy and stiff it can be, slowing down the stitching experience. Using a size 26 needle instead of my usual size 28 helps.
