It has been stitched beautifully for the magazine by Jan Hazeltine.

This simple, yet striking design is the one I have worked on for Lakeside Needlecraft for their Winter Cross stitch book 2019. It is full of exclusive charts from 60 worldwide designers. Do take a look as it would be a lovely idea for a Christmas present whether for a stitching friend or perhaps spoil yourself!
