Bargello Symphony is actually Mystery #8 of a series designed by Loretta Spears.
Both Terry and myself had purchased the pattern a couple years back and had just put it in our pile of UFOs.
This project was always in the back of my mind and I knew that one day I was going to stitch it. Ever since I had seen it on the ANG website at http://www.needlepoint.org/WhatIs/1999/BargelloSym.php it had been love at first sight :-)
Terry and I started chatting one day and we both decided that it was time for us to stitch it and what better way then stitch it together so we could encourage and help each other along the way. It turned out that we needed both during the time it took us to complete it.
There are 6 lessons in this Mystery project and if I recall right it took us about 5 to 6 weeks to complete, working exclusively on this project.
The background was especially long to stitch with all those "Victorian steps", but we were both determined to bring this project to a conclusion and we both did :-)
