Forgotten designs

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.

I stopped buying magazines years ago, but I have loads to refer back to.

What a cute design! We are all bird lovers in our house.

Such a lovely finish. It's strange how, when unearthing old magazines, designs suddenly speak to us when perhaps we hadn't noticed them before

Such a sweet design Linda, he looks like Biggles ;) I hope you had a lovely weekend my friend and that the week is going good so far for you and continues on in the same way! Hazel xx

He's cute, he would look nice on a hat to keep the sun off your head in the garden.

He is adorable! I got a subscription to World of Cross Stitching this year and I can see myself finally getting to some of the designs I want to stitch in 2020 (with luck).
