Although it is listed as 1 DMC colors, quite a few of them do not need a lot of floss. (HA! Just checking to see if you're reading this far!) You probably have enough in remnants from other projects to use in this one. The symbol guide in the booklet has the number of stitches need. Here’s the breakdown:

• 0 colors have less than or exactly 20 stitches
• 0 colors have between 21 and 50 stitches
• 0 colors have between 51 and 100 stitches
• 0 colors have between 101 and 200 stitches
• 0 colors have between 201 and 500 stitches
• 0 colors have between 501 and 1000 stitches
• 0 colors have between 1001 and 2000 stitches
• 2 color has over 2001 stitches

I love this design for a pillow. I also wanted rustic but soft. The seller has been the best to communicate with. I asked her so many questions, but yet she was always happy, gracious and helpful! Started this. Not an easy pattern, but the detail will be so worth it.

Dorothy, I was getting ready for bed and decided to check my emails.....and there you were with the finished product. You made me cry.........I am 73 yrs old and have been cross stitching for over 40 years and never, I mean never have I ever seen a pattern so clearly printed, clearly stated, soooooo professionally done, so beautifully explained as what you just provided............I have no words..............thank you is not good enough. What you went through to produce this for me, I don't have the words to express my gratitude. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The finished product is going to a well deserved police officer at Christmas time. As I wipe the tears, I smile because I met someone like you. You are awesome! Thank you for being YOU!
