I was very excited to receive a copy of a Turkish magazine called Kanavice. The company behind this publication is Tuva who publish books and magazines for embroidery and cross stitch enthusiasts. Tuva have licensed my designs and have translated them into cross stitch charts.
The robin design has been made into the cushion in the picture above, the garden design has been worked into a garden picture. I was amazed to see how much love and devotion has gone into the stitching of each piece.
If you are interested in cross stitch you might like to visit Tuva here. Looking at the photographs in this publication has made me long for the spring. How nice would it be to sit in that garden chair and stitch!
