Work the free pattern in cross stitch using DMC Pearl Variations thread (which is also available in a 6-strand floss version) on CharlesCraft Gold Standard 14-count Ivory Aida. Only 2 skeins of Pearl Variations are needed for this project. I chose a pretty, Autumn-toned color, but the turkey would look equally pretty worked in red or blue DMC Six-Strand Embroidery Floss (redwork- or bluework-style).
Happy Stitching! ~Emma
