In the present October edition of Cross Stitch Collection you can find some quick and pretty items to stitch. There are a couple here for you to see; I particulaly like the covered buttons with an attached loop for a really pretty hair band and the simple, but very effective floral card that gives the appearance of a watercolour painting; soft and quite natural. For those of you who like needlepoint or perhaps might wish to try, this chart would be an ideal place to start. Convert the stranded cottons into wools and stitch on 10 count canvas. Remember you will need to stitch the back ground and for this, try a cream wool.
