Oh yes, the sunshine has finally come out at CrossStitcher HQ and boy are we in the mood for Spring.
This month, we've crammed-in as many outdoor ideas and sunshine prints as our little cross stitching fingers could handle. Our vintage-style Songbird frames are as pretty as a picture and our retro patterned deers look just fabulous stitched onto the corner of a picnic blanket!
Your FREE GIFT, an exclusive Jubilee crown stitch kit (designed by Jan Constantine) is just in time for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee too. Phew!
CrossStitcher's June issue (253), on sale today...
If, like us, you've been enjoying a combination of sunshine and showers recently, then you'll love the selection of cheery designs we've got lined-up for you such as Lucie Heaton's sunshine shopper, below.
How about a big floral design? Lesley Teare's cushion is certainly an centrepiece bloom, if ever we did see one and Fiona Crouch's purple birds are perfect for last-minute Spring birthday cards.
Download our free backing papers to get started on yours.
Even if you're short on time, we've got lots of dinky designs to put a smile on your face. There's a trio of delicious cake tags to get whet your appetite and a sweet floral alphabet that would be perfect for personalising a gift for a new baby this season.
Maybe our quirky Corgi fridge magnets are more your style? Stitch one up as a humorous nod towards the Queen's Diamond Jubilee next month. After all, she loves her pooches!
