In the latest issue of Gold - 106 With this cushion, I have created a modern take on the mistletoe wreath - a softly curving sprig of bead - like berries, with bold patterned leaves.
The trend for contemporary Christmas colours, such as bright pink, purple and turquoise, seems to be growing, so I wanted to introduce these colours into my design.
My design uses cross stitch and traditional backstitches only so it is ideal for all stitchers... as the editor, Medina Bailey, said in the magazine, 'why not add an extra touch of fun, why not sew a fuchsia pink pom-pom trim around the edge'... sounds great fun to me.
