Cross Stitch - Poppies Puddles

The next instalment in the Belle & Boo cross stitch collection by Cross Stitcher Magazine is here! 
The third in the collection is of the gorgeous Poppies Puddles. You can purchase the magazine online here or at national stockists.

We love seeing the finished work of your cross stitchers (and we're finding Instagram great for this! If you use Instagram use the tag #belleandboo). 

Here's one that was sent to us:

Just take a look at this gorgeous cross stitch done by Irina! I just love how she's sewn on wooden leaf buttons instead of stitching them. It gives the piece such a wonderful depth, don't you think?

Love, Clare


  1. beautiful stitching! i love the buttons too - so perfect. i'm working on the same one, but not nearly as far on. it's thoroughly enjoyable though!

  2. So cute with the buttons.

    I got the latest edition today. I just finished making some little animals from one of the books for the new grandbaby's room and am going to start one of your designs. Love them. Thank you for sharing them.

  3. I must buy this edition, your designs are so lovely.
