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.

Funny, I always find the sturdier fabrics easier to stitch. I am looking forward to watching your progress on this piece. I too have a whole lot of someday projects.

I looked this one up online, and it will be gorgeous! But you have a ways to go... Being retired is just the right time to get it done! Hugs!
