An Expression of Gratitude

  • $11.00

Stitch Count - 237 H X 111 W

Model is stitched on 40-count Examplar hand-dyed fabric by Lakeside Linens with one strand over-two linen threads.

Model is stitched with Crescent Colours Hand Dyed Floss (now Classic Colorworks) Belle Soie 12-strand silk (DMC equivalents provided):

Crescent Colours/Classic Colorworks Belle Soie 12-strand silk:
Butterscotch (729) - 1 skein
Carrot Cake (3853) - 1 skein
Cinnamon Stick (434) - 1 skein
Collard Greens (520) - 1 skein
Lasagne (921) - 1 skein
Mudpie (898) - 1 skein

Floss estimation is for stitching as directed on 40-count fabric with one strand of floss over-two threads of linen. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand over-dyed fibers.

Package contains a master chart and an enlarged chart printed on eight pages for easy viewing.

I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.

Back Stitch (leaf veins)

Belle Soie Silk to Crescent Colours (Classic Colorworks) Cotton Floss Conversion:

Belle Soie 12-strand silk (Crescent Colours/Clasic Colorworks cotton floss in parenthesis):
Butterscotch (Ye Old Gold)
Carrot Cake (Candy Corn)
Cinnamon Stick (Old Oak Tree)
Collard Greens (Spinach)
Lasagne (Fallen Leaves) - there is no real close match, Fallen Leaves seems to work best.
Mudpie (La Tierra) 

A little disclaimer: I highly recommend using the Belle Soie silks, if you are wanting the same look as the model. The DMC colors will obviously not provide the same shading and are only approximate. The Crescent Colors (Classic Colorworks) cotton floss will provide the shading, but the colors are not exact matches. I have converted the colors using the dye-lots I have on hand - the stitcher (or shop where purchasing supplies) may need to make slight adjustments to make the conversions more personally "eye pleasing".
