Mostly trying to figure out if I'll need more floss. But I am using a red silk floss, and since I never bother to put one thing away before starting something else, I still have the other different red silk floss inches away in threaded needles for the Dragons of Sumatra pattern. I'm clearly living dangerously and on the edge. I'm old, this IS dangerous and on the edge enough for me.

Garden Fair from Courtney Collection.
On 28 count Antique White Jobelan from Hobby Lobby. One over one.
Using suggested Classic Colorworks Belle Soie Silk Floss in the color Tulip.
Started with quantity 4 - each are 5 yards - 12 strands.
Using a different Gloriana Silk in the color India Ink #103 for the dark.
Started with quantity 4 - each are 6 yards - 12 strands.
The plan is to do the pattern as charted - then see where I am on the floss used. The plan was to buy twice the floss needed and then double the pattern design width.
14.357 inches long by 6.035 inches wide - or doubled to approx 12.07 inches wide
This floss was purchased at ABC Stitch. But it will be the last purchase from them.

I am not sure about doing the grass, which is a straight stitch over three threads, using two strands. If it's the only chart done that way - I won't, so that is gonna wait till I see more.
On the 'With Thy Needle and Thread' site, there is a lovely behind the scenes story about this series.
