This is a cross stitch project I have started many years ago. I am following a pattern by Le Idees de Suzanna (Luglio-Agosto 1997). I chose to use the whole embroidery floss (the 6 strands), which create a tapestry-like texture. The downsize is that it requires more strength. I worked diligently on it for some months before putting it aside. Now is a good time to finish it.
If you are wondering about the number of strands that are used in embroidery and cross stitch, you can read a post I wrote about it here.
