Description

"Anyone with a love of the countryside will enjoy all the tips and seasonal folklore, so don't miss it."--"Needlecraft magazine." March rabbits cavorting in spring sunshine, summer flowers cascading from hanging baskets, field mice in search of autumn berries, and acrobatic bluetits providing flashes of color in winter bleakness: more than 50 different projects, ranging from small stuffed toys to large scale pictures, celebrate the changing of the seasons. These wildlife scenes make wonderful gifts or beautiful decorations for the home, and many combine silk ribbon embroidery and beadwork with the cross stitch. From a baby's cot blanket decorated with newborn animals to a box adorned with delicate Christmas roses, this is a year-round celebration!show more
