Goofs: yes, not design-impairing; miscounted on a couple rows, not too blatantly obvious
Purpose: Christmas ornament
Notes/Modifications: I refused to buy the RG threads when I have a ton of DMC, so I matched up my own colors. I used:
- DMC 498 for the red
- Section A is 319
- Section B is 501 with the Rhodes stitches in 319 and I also reversed my stitches
- Section C is 502 for the lighter green, 936 for the darker and reversed the stitch on one of them
- Section D is 502 and the vertical tied crosses are 367, and I also did some reverse stitching on alternating lines of 502
- Section E is 3362, and the broad crosses are 895; the brown is 3031.
