Whether you're sunning yourself in summer or wrapping up in winter, every season needs a little bit of cross stitch magic!
Allowing the changing of the seasons to shape your cross stitch vision for the year, is a beautiful way to keep your projects feeling fresh and in keeping with the theme of the natural surroundings.
