While waiting for the next part of Tree of Stitches to be released, I was looking for something simple to stitch. I wanted one color of thread and just cross stitch, nothing fancy. It seemed like all the projects I had on the go had a zillion colors or required concentration, something I don't always have a lot of at the end of a working day.
So, I found this design from Whispered by the Wind. It's called "Scherzo" and the model shows it stitched in an overdyed thread. I chose 28 count Cashel/Confederate Grey and #844 Mandarin Bamboo floss from Rainbow Gallery, which is a solid color, not overdyed. I just love this color of fabric, it's one of my favorites. The floss I'd had in my stash for a while but had not tried it and it's a dream to stitch with, it just glides through the fabric. I'm really enjoying this project.
This is one week's progress, more than 1/3 and less than 1/2, but I don't think it will take too much longer to finish.
