Whether you love it or hate it, Valentine’s day is coming up. While some may be well underway stitching and creating handmade gifts for the one they love, this year we are saying ‘Treat yourself!’
Here we have our 9 favourite kits that are perfect to get for yourself and enjoy for more than just one day of the year.
This magical kit is an all time customer favourite. The chart is worked using just black stranded cotton on 14 count hand dyed Aida fabric. It creates this eye popping silhouette that is simply mesmerizing.
If, like me, you are a cat person this kit will be one you will love to stitch. It’s simple illustrated design makes the cat look so lifelike.
The Hannah Dale kits from Bothy Threads are always mega popular. Their fun loving speckled designs keep getting better with every new kit that is released. The Jolly Robin is our top bought cross stitch kit. If you haven’t got yours yet, now is the time! The Pink Ladies kit features three sassy flamingos looking like they are about to drop the best album of the year. And the Practically Perfect Peacock is a must stitch because of its vibrant colours.
The Love tree is designed by talented illustrator Kim Anderson. Her wonderful designs are inspired by looking at vintage and ethnic patterns along with contemporary magazines for inspiration plus wondering around the lanes of her hometown of Brighton.
Not only is this quick to stitch kit cute and fun, it also helps to raise money for the Pink Ribbon Foundation, a grant making trust with a mission to fund projects and provide financial support to UK charities which relieve the needs of people who are suffering from, or who have been affected by breast cancer.
Treat yourself with our latest stitchalong, designed by the talented Julia Lines of Long Dog Samplers. This treat to yourself will last 11 months with a new part of the chart being released every fourth Friday.
This fun kit is one of two kits which features funny unsuspecting animals in quite the predicament. The other kit is ‘The Individual‘. These kits are a lot of fun and will put a smile on your face as you stitch them!
