Stitching with Freebies

I love freebies and I collect them over the years. I picked 4 French Freebies and stitched them with various overdyed floss/silk:

I do carry all the threads except the Carson Wildflowers, but I am adding Carson threads very soon on my web site:

Stitched with Crescent Colours Cotton Crab Cake and ThreadworX 10761 Butterscott and Cherries, those 2 colors compliment each other really well, the flowers on the 4 corners are stitched with Crescent Colours and the rest with ThreadworX:

Stitched with Dinky Dyes Silk Ruby, I am so impressed with her silk:

I love using Carson Wildflowers threads to stitch blackwork designs, here is Carson Wildflower African Sunset:

Stitched with Valdani Overdyed Floss V3122 Victorian Mauves, I used 20 ct linen to stitch this piece since the chart itself is small. Valdani Floss is all colorfast.

Your biscurnus are so delicate!!! I think African Sunset is my favorite!!! Usualy, I'm not fond of blackwork, but with soft colors like the one you chose, it's beautiful!!! Great work!!

I love Carons Wildflowers thread. It gives such a beautiful finish.
