Stitching with ThreadworX

I have some time to do some normal stitching this month. I picked 3 threadworx threads for the 3 pieces. 2 of the colors are new and I was fortunate enough to be given "samples". I love them so much that I bought quite a few of them to sell on my web site as well. I also used one of the new colors in my new design which will be released tomorrow.

The new colors are:

10981 Rose Petal

10372 Kaleb's cherry patch

I love Kaleb's cherry patch. I thought Threadworx Cherries was my favorite until I stitch Kaleb's cherry patch.

Here are the stitched pieces:
