Occasionally the gals on the 123 Message Board point other stitchers to free cross stitch charts that are offered for our stitching pleasure. Here are some of the sites that offer legal free charts.
Better Cross Stitch
Fabric: 14 count
Stitches: 300 x 230
Size: 21 3/8 x 16 3/8 in

The charts are in pdf format and are available to print in either black and white or color. Personally, I prefer black and white as they are easier on my eyes. Take the time to explore that many different subjects that are offered.

Jardin Prive is a French designer who offers some beautiful designs for us to stitch. One of my favorites is offered in five parts as a Stitch A Long La Pensée Positive which is pictured below.
There are 5 separate charts available in several languages including English available for download as pdf’s.
