This is one beautiful freebie. Designed especially for DMC by Joan Elliott using different types of DMC floss (regular DMC, Satin, and Light Effects), and stitched on Stardust Aida, this piece shines and sparkles all around.

Pattern available at DMC-USA.com.

Stitch count is 143 x 185 and there are , so it’s not a super quick stitch, but it’s worth the effort. I would rank this as intermediate level stitching because some of the threads can be difficult to work with and there is some embellishment to do with Mill Hill Glass Seed Beads and decorative backstitching.

When you’re gathering and sorting your supplies, make sure to go through all the colors listed on the legend page. It confused me a bit at first and I almost missed the DMC 3831 Raspberry.
