I stitched this on 14 ct lavender hand-dyed Aida with DMC floss. The finished size is 9" x 9". I substituted a few of the colors that I didn't have, so there is a little more green and blue in the snow, which should be much lighter. I also used DMC Light Effects floss in pink and purple that I already had, instead of buying the brighter colors for the Northern Lights. I did order the Anchor multicolored floss in Blue Hawaii for the water, which I had to wait awhile for, but it was worth it!
I bought this chart on eBay one night around 2:00 a.m. when I was standing in line during Black Friday, the big shopping day after Thanksgiving. I was so excited to win the auction that I didn't mind paying for pages out of a magazine so I could get this chart! It came out of the December 2006 issue of UK Cross Stitcher magazine.
You can buy the chart from The Silver Needle in Oklahoma, and they include the multicolored floss for the water and the pink and purple metallic for the Northern Lights. OR you could leave a comment below if you're interested in this chart and I will pass it on to the winner of my giveaway! I will draw a name on Sunday, September 29, and mail it anywhere in the world. But remember, my chart is only the pages from the magazine. Good luck!
