This is my first ever needlepoint project and the design was by Loretta Spears (I think that she is now either chronically ill or deceased and her designs are no longer available unless on Ebay or somewhere similar) this is one of her series of Mystery Designs.
I was only able to attempt this and complete it with the help of my wonderful friend Pierrette who held my hand from start to finish.
We chat daily but for around five weeks we not only chatted but exchanged photos of Bargello Symphony daily where she stood over me with a big stick (LOL).
This is the end result, Pierrette also completed the same project along side me for herself, however I changed mine very slightly as I always like to be different. If you view hers see if you can see the difference and I do not mean the way that she has mounted and framed hers.

This is a companion Cushion Cover that I made as a gift to compliment the autumn/fall one I had previously made for Pierrette.
This is a memory Cushion with photos I printed onto fabric and incoportated into the cover of some of Pierrette's and her husbands dear departed loved ones
