Set of eight holiday ornament designs with finishing instructions.
Stitch Count (per ornament):
61 x 61 Full Size
33 x 33 Small Size (Center Square only)
Models are stitched on 40-count Light Examplar hand-dyed fabric by Lakeside Linens with one strand over both one and two linen threads.

Floss estimation is for stitching all eight ornaments (full size) with model specifics. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact matches for hand-dyed floss.
Finishing supplies for all eight ornaments (as shown):
DMC six-strand embroidery floss for twisted cord: 8 skeins - 934 (one skein per ornament)
Weeks Dye Works Wool Fabric - 1 Fat Quarter - 2158 Juniper
Kreinik Custom Corder™ (mini drill)
Basic sewing supplies
Piece contains cross stitch over-two linen threads and cross stitch over-one linen thread.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
About the design: This is the second set of "letter" ornaments; "Red Letter Ornaments" (BRD-060) is also available.
For a smaller ornament, stitch the center square without the border. The smaller ornaments stitch up quite quickly and are perfect for gift giving. They are also a great size for gift tags.
