Some of you may remember last summer when I "re-charted" this design (the pic on the right is the re-chart). By doing so, I reduced the number of colors from 79 to 46, partly by eliminating colors that were practically identical and also by substituting an overdye for several colors. I also added some metallics. I spent a couple of weeks doing this and while I enjoyed the process, I doubt that I will ever do that again!
I finally started stitching it a couple of months ago. I haven't posted about it before because it just takes forever to get anywhere! Anyway, here is my progress so far:
Doesn't look like much does it?
I am stitching it on brown 18-count canvas with DMC floss (4-strands), one Threadworx overdyed floss, and Kreinik #12 metallics. As slow going as it is with 46 colors, I can't even imagine what it would be like at 79. I do enjoy the process though. I wonder if I'll ever finish it? I won't post about it often for obvious reasons!
