Go on, tweet yourself – or a friend – to a design featuring four of our favourite feathered friends. We’re big fans of the ‘4 Seasonal Birds’ stitch, designed by Durene Jones in her trademark cute and colourful style and available from Lakeside Needlecraft. This stitch will take you right through the year with a bird for every season. There’s a blue tit for spring, goldcrest for summer, in the autumn there’s a goldfinch and a chaffinch for winter. When finished, this eye-catching design measures 38.5x58cm (15¼x22¾in). Courtesy of Lakeside Needlecraft, we have 23 bird PDF charts (£10.99) to give away.
