Model stitched with one strand of floss "over One" on 32 count "Queen Anne's Lace" Jobelan by Wichelt Imports, it measures 5.4" x 4.1". My favorite!

Stitched with two strands of floss "over two" on 32 count "Queen Anne's Lace" Jobelan by Wichelt Imports or Antique White Belfast Linen by Zweigart, it measures 10.8" x 8.2".

ONLY DMC floss is used in this design.

Here are the colors;

208/ 209/ 210/ 211/ 327/ 469/ 470/ 471/ 472/ 520/ 550/ 552/ 553/ 554/ 935/ 936/ 937/ 3743/ and blended (3371 + 936) and (3371 + 550), (3609 + 209) and (3689 + 210).

When you use blended colors you can use both colors on the needle at the same time but only do half a cross making sure it lays the right way.

You can also do one color (the darkest of the two) for the first leg of the stitch and the lighter color for the second half of the cross stitch.
(for 32 count over one this method works best)

Use one strand of floss for back stitching!

Have fun stitching!
