The evenings are darker, it's cold outside and it's almost Christmas. This makes it the perfect opportunity to snuggle down at home with a cross stitch kit to hand and to let the 'Hygge' times roll. Hygge is the Danish way of living, it doesn't have a direct translation, but it means enjoying the good things in life and feeling cosy, content and warm in your surroundings. As there really is nothing better then keeping cosy during the winter and doing cross stitch by candlelight, we've put together a few of our favourite Scandinavian inspired cross stitch kits that will help you fast track to Hygge in no time!
