I used Valdani 3 strand floss balls for the punch needle and Weeks Dye for the Cross Stitch Turkey 
These are my choices and they are not perfect but as close as I could choose. 
The DMC comparison should be blended or used as solids but alternating colors.
The choice is up to you. I hope this is helpful. donna.

I’ve always loved old Colonial homes with painted murals on their walls. This is the first in this series of three. These look wonderful hanging alone, or in a grouping, or if you would like to even stitch all three designs together they do fit properly. It would look great over one linen thread. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

If stitched over 1 on 28ct linen and finished like my “Stitch An Inch Series” they fit great in these heart pendants that are available on my Web shop.  Directions for finishing them with fabric glue is on my blog under
 “Stitch An Inch Finish Dir” 
ALSO available
 ON MY BLOG ARE THE  CROCHET  DIRECTIONS  to make the hearts that are in the photo. These directions are FREE and a way for me to say Thank You. 
Included in this design are the Letters that fit perfect in the center of the checkered heart. These would make lovely gifts for friends and family.
