cross stitch gold

When the last of the summer sun begins to set, we are well and truly in the mood for designs depicting heartwarming, cosy scenes in autumnal shades of burnt orange, plum, mustard, olive green, rusty red and rich chocolate… So, with this in mind, we have an issue packed with new season-inspired projects including a sweet hedgehog cushion on page 12, harvest festival design by Durene Jones (p20), and of course, our cover star – Carol Thornton’s autumnal farm (p52), which completely puts us in the mood for crunchy-leafed walks followed by warming red wine!

I love all the large designs in Gold, but this was my first time using beads – it did take me quite a while to get the hang of the technique, but I’m so pleased that I perservered as the beads are the highlight. I love horses and so I couldn’t resist this piece, which I’m going to hang in my bedroom. Now I can’t wait to stitch my next Shannon Wasilieff design. Keep them coming!

GOLD STAR BUY Elegant Emily We love the newest addition to John Clayton’s Elegance range.
