The August issue of Cross Stitch Collection is out today, packed with gorgeous designs to stitch!

Complete the series of Joan Elliott's Historical Ladies with the Fabulous Flapper - in her beautiful dress decorated with metallic thread and pearl seed beads, this lady is the epitome of glamour. Exclusive from Anchor, we have a striking chart of British coastal birds, while Maria Diaz's canal boat scene and Lesley Teare's water lily and dragonfly design will remind you of summer all year round. 

As well as these and other stunning projects, we show you how to make lavender-scented sachets for your home and bring you plenty of stitching ideas and inspiration.
