The sampler model is stitched on 40-count Tundra hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.
The needlework small models are stitched on 40-count Bittersweet hand-dyed fabric from Lakeside Linens.
To stitch all four of the needlework smalls with model specifics, you will need a 14” H x 10” W piece of 40-count linen (diagram for layout enclosed) - this is with a 1" seam allowance and 2" between pieces - you may wish to cut a larger size for additional working space. Chartpack contains cut sizes for alternate fabric counts.
Gloriana Threads 12-Strand Silk: Blossoms (151) - one 4-yard skein Blythe Green (3364) - one 4-yard skein Crimson (150) - one 4-yard skein Elizabethan Green (3362) - one 4-yard skein Rosewood (3685) - one 6-yard skein Valentines (335) - one 4-yard skein
Floss estimation is for stitching all five pieces as directed on 40-count linen with one strand of silk/floss. DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed silk.
Package contains charts for each of the five pieces, stitching instructions, complete finishing instructions for the needlework smalls, and a worksheet area and alphabet for personalization.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
