DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers; for best results, use the hand-dyed floss.
Entire piece is done in cross stitch. Piece does contain two french knots for door knobs and backstitching around windows and doors.
Initials,date, and birds are cross-stitch over one linen thread.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
This piece was inspired by my friend Ann; she moved to California years ago and I miss her dearly.
