DMC equivalents are only approximate, as there are no exact equivalents for hand-dyed fibers; for best results, use the hand-dyed floss.
Piece contains cross-stitch, backstitch (house roof/windows), smyrna stitch (holly berries in border), and several french knots (door wreath).
Initials and year are done in cross-stitch over one linen thread.
I encourage you to use floss and fabric colors that match your personality and style.
