Models are stitched on 40-count Winter Sky 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.

Model is stitched with Crescent Colours Hand Dyed Floss (now Classic Colorworks) (DMC equivalents provided) and DMC six-strand embroidery floss:

Crescent Colours/Classic Colorworks Cotton Floss:
Blackbird (310) - 1 skein
Blue Beatrice (161) - 1 skein
Brown Sugar (434) - 1 skein
Cool Azul (160) - 1 skein 
Cupid (816) - 1 skein
Erin Go Emerald (500) - 1 skein
Granny Annie (803) - 1 skein
Jolly Holly (987) - 1 skein
Snowball (White) - 2 skeins

DMC Six-Strand Embroidery Floss:
413 - 1 skein
922 - 1 skein

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

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.

Stitches (daigrams provided):

Cross Stitch over-two linen threads
Back Stitch
Diamond Straight Cross Stitch (snowflakes)
Smyrna Cross Stitch (snowflakes)

Finishing Supplies:

2 skeins DMC six-strand cotton embroidery floss - 823 (for twisted cord). I chose a very dark blue to complement the pieces - choose your own favorite color.

Matching ribbon (for needlebook)
