china blue

Walks in the countryside are so inspiring and it’s where we spot a huge number of the most wonderful birds. The blue tit is a favourite as its feathers are so striking – the contrast between the blues and yellows in the birds’ plumage is amazing, and it makes a lovely centrepiece for this decorative plate design. The pretty bluebells and primroses in the foreground are a delicate addition to the design and their hues are used in the decorative border, which helps to tie the design together nicely and gives it an elegant finish. Stitchers will enjoy recreating the rich colours and patterns.Stitching FactboxStitching time: Approx 50 hoursType of stitches: Whole cross stitch, fractionals, backstitchLevel: IntermediateYou will needThreads: Stranded cotton and metallic thread as listed in the keyNeedle: Size…

back to nature

Some of the most beautiful flowers in nature are often found growing wild, be it in countryside hedgerows or on untouched stretches of land. With well-tended, weed-free lawns often taking our attention, nature’s blooms can go unnoticed, so we’re celebrating their splendour in this gorgeous meadow design. From the clever shading on the poppies to the twists and turns of each blade of grass, this scene is packed full of detail. Stitchers with a bit more experience will love getting stuck into a project which has this much depth, and you’ll get to show off all your stitching skills, too.Stitching FactboxStitching time: Approx 90 hoursType of stitches: Cross stitch, fractionals, backstitch, French knotsLevel: Intermediate/AdvancedYou will needThreads: Stranded cotton as listed in the keyNeedle: Size 24 tapestry needleFabric: 14-count rustico aida,…

goosey gander

These geese look so peaceful, why not switch off from the hectic pace of life and stitch this beautiful rural scene? A few stitching techniques feature and the whole design will be finished in under a month, so it’s the ideal summer project. Texture comes from French knots in this picture and our diagram and clear instructions on page 147 will help you with those. If you really don’t like to work them, simply pick out seed beads in suitable colours and attach these in place of French knots. This picturesque scene is stitched on pale lemon aida and is filled with bold and vibrant shades.Stitching FactboxStitching time: Approx 30 hoursType of stitches: Cross stitch, fractionals, backstitch, French knotsLevel: IntermediateYou will needThreads: Stranded cotton as listed in the keyNeedle: Size…

woodland fox

The wily fox makes a handsome portrait as he sits among the wildflowers, berries and toadstools of the woodland in this autumn scene. Bright eyed and bushy tailed, this handsome creature’s ginger-coloured coat fits in well with the foliage of landscape coloured with the shades of early autumn. The colours of our fox’s fur are richly shaded and it’s this, together with the fractional stitches, that ensures there are plenty of points of interest and challenging areas to keep your needle happy. The pale blue 28-count evenweave also adds to the naturalistic feel of this lovely design.Stitching FactboxStitching time: Approx 60 hoursType of stitches: Whole cross stitch, fractionals, backstitchLevel: IntermediateYou will needThreads: Stranded cotton as listed in the keyNeedle: Size 26 tapestry needleFabric: 28-count light blue evenweave, measuring 36x30cm (14x12in)Extras:…
