I'm experimenting with the Kreinik doing a full cross with 1 strand of blending filament. It looks a little sparse, but when all is said and done I don't think it will really matter. This is the first time I've had to do big blocks of the metallic so I'm not sure how it compares with a half cross of #4.
So far this has been an easy stitch, bunches of big blocks of color, very relaxing. But I've worked on it more than twice as long as I'm "supposed" to so I'll be moving on tomorrow to The Blue Rose Sampler by Nostalgic Needle. I'm looking forward to it -- the colors are lovely. I hope I don't get into that "it's not a HAED" stitching rut, though.

It looks lovely Dede I'd be sorry to put it down too
Wow Dede you have made a good dent in it already! I love that you got to the rose crown already. That's the bit I'm looking forward to the most!
It's looking stunning so far, Dede, I can understand why you don't want to put it down too!
