This floral display is certainly in Christmas reds, but its bright and cheerful colours will be a design that I will love looking at throughout the year. There is a limited amount of backstitch used, so this helps give a more natural look to the picture. Find it in the latest issue of Cross Stitch Collection 243 out today! Also in this issue are the charming small Christmas stockings which are shown as a lovely idea for the Festive table. The design is stitched onto a pale blue linen, which will go well with my blue and white china, but any colour of fabric can be chosen to fit in with your own colour schemes. If you are having family and friends round then why not fill them with a few goodies?!
