While I was sorting through my crafting stash last week I came across an older copy of Cross Stitcher which had lots of lovely charts inside. One in particular I am hoping to stitch as a birthday present for someone this year but until the fabric arrives I decided to stitch one of the smaller charts. The bird charts are designed as brooches but I didn't read the fabric count and wanted to try and use up some of my scraps of aida. Consequently it has turned out a little too big for a brooch so I am going to turn it into a hanging decoration instead.
What I didn't realise that this magazine goes back to February 2011.
