Weeks Dye Works embroidery floss and this was my first time using them. The Weeks Dye Works flosses are over dyed flosses and they have a variation in color that runs throughout them. They add a lot of interest with the variations in colors but they are a bit pricey so I just purchased only the threads that I thought would make the biggest impact like on the berries and the bird. Since the leaves had so many colors in them, I used some WDW floss and some DMC floss.
I really enjoyed working on this cross stitch piece. It was fun with all of the bright colors and I was able to finish it off just in time for berry season.
