I'm stitching this pattern on 18 count ivory aida cloth (needed a break from linen) using 2 strands of DMC cotten floss. The pattern has a complete stitch count of 112,500, and to date, I've completed a mere 9384 stitches, or approximately 8.34%. And I started sometime in January of this year. And it's now the middle of September. Somehow, I don't see this being this year's Christmas present. Moving right along, there are 129 colors used in this pattern, with 33 of them being blended colors, which only adds to the richness and depth of the design.
