This design can be found in the leaflet Traditional Trees 2011 from
Sue Hillis Designs.
32 ct. Ivory linen by HDF (any light colored linen could be used)
Green - HDF 3229/3241/3339    (BeLeaved could be used as well as your favorite tonal green variegated)
Red - HDF 6217/1111/1235/1141 (BeRedded could be used as well as your favorite tonal red variegated)
Gold - HDF Guilded Cage or your favorite gold variegated

Pears are stitched with a strand Guilded Cage and a strand Kreinik metallic blending filament 002HL (gold)

Beads are 11/0 seed beads in transparent ruby from fire mountain gems.  Any translucent red seed bead could be used.

Backing is a ruby red shantung silk but any matching red fabric could be used.

Silk ribbon ruched edge:  Double thickness of HDF 13mm Perfect Red 6217 and BeLeaved.  I put the two ribbons together and stitched them as one, to get the 2-color effect.
