- Fall for foliage! A kaleidoscope of autumnal colors and quilt patterns combine harmoniously in this pillow project from designer Carolyn Manning. Worked in full cross stitches with a few backstitches, the Autumn Crazy Quilt will be a graceful addition to any sofa or chair.
- Deck the halls! In the Christmas Mantel Scarf, a showstopping display of colors come together to create the stunning design worked in rich hues of red, aquamarine and soft cream. The trees, delicate peacocks and borders can be worked as few or as many times as necessary for a customized project to fit your mantel.
- Stitching snowmen! Craft your own sweet and smiling Jake the Snowman, complete with earmuffs, a scarf and buttons. The unique project is worked in cross stitch with a sprinkling of Smyrna cross and Rhodes stitches, but the finishing is what creates this one-of-a-kind design that will have you giggling with every stitch.
