French Freebie Biscornu with Various Overdyed Floss/Silk

Finally, I have something to post. I have picked 4 French freebies from various sites. They are perfect designs for Biscornu. I carry all these threads except the Carson Wild flowers, but I will be adding some Carson threads soon.

Stitched with Dinky Dyes Silk, Ruby (the silk is very smooth and I am very impressed with the quality):

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, the picture does not show those subtle and pretty color combination:

Stitched with Carson Wildflower African Sunset, I like using Carson Wildflower for "Blackwork" and I will be adding Carson Waterlilies and Wildflower soon on my web site:

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.

I have been adding new products on my web site, more update and pictures soon. I am working on a few floss tags as well. Have a wonderful week and thank you for visiting my blog.
