CrossStitcher September issue 256 - on sale todayThe long summer months are the best time to step back and appreciate the simple things in life. A long walk with the dog, a spot of stitching in the sunshine or a spontanious holiday with friends. (If that sounds like your cup of tea, you're going to love this new lifestyle magazine, launching soon...)

With that in mind, we've scooped-up a bunch of refreshing designs to help you relax this summer. Our cover star, is Felicity Hall's beautiful carnival design - inspired by trendy poster art and nostalgic chalky colours reminiscent of vintage fairground rides.

Find your next project in our September issue - out now!
