Floral wreath cross stitch pattern with a quote by John Heider: If you want to be free, learn to live simply
Size: 98×97 stitches
"Live Simply" is a cross stitch pattern that takes about a week to complete. 14-count Aida cloth should work well for this particular pattern. Count measures how many stitches can be made in one inch as determined by the size of the fabric weave. The stitched pattern will be about 7×6⅞ inches or 17.8×17.6 centimeters. Remember to include additional space around the margin of the Aida cloth.
Floss: 4 colors
Very Light Plum
Ultra Light Plum
4 different colors of DMC floss are necessary to complete the "Live Simply" pattern. An approximate conversion table is provided for other brands of floss such as Anchor, J&P Coats, Gamma, Ariadna and Madeira. Note that some of the required floss numbers are unavailable for Puppets.
Assorted Floss Packs

Everyone has a hobby or two, you do it everyday, or use it everyday and you love doing it. I enjoy creating my own cross stitch patterns and sharing them with everyone who likes this hobby. Happy stitching!
