This is from EMS cross stitch - a free design for a scissors case. I just love how it stitched (just off the machine). Did have to trim a lot of jump stitches at each thread change, but it stitched quickly and well so I'll do it again.

Flower colors are the same in both, one 5 shades light to dark, the other reversed dark to light in stitching it out.

and .. Once you register, you can download 5 designs a day. Download time seems to set to the time you downloaded (so if you download in the evening, the next morning and all day it will say you reached your download limit until the clock hits 24 hours from your last download). What I've only just figured out is big pictures of the freebies (instead of tiny thumbnails) are in the gallery in one album. A few of those in the albums are only free as hand stitch charts.
