Amazingly, it didn't take me as long to stitch the daffodil as I originally thought. In fact - I am finished!!!!!!
I stitched it over one on black 24-count Congress cloth with DMC floss. I discovered I needed to work with shorter lengths of floss as the canvas fuzzed it if I used longer lengths. It was a great design to pick up and take it with me as I could concentrate on working one rectangle at a time.
