In Cross Stitcher this month – my column is was entitled WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE, as not content with owls and cute folksy fowls, designers are looking to the Jungle Greats for their latest inspirations
I love Markus Lupfers animal sequinned jumpers this season, whilst Stella Macartney has also added a bit of roar with her tiger prints

The influence of mid century needlepoint is all around.. like this vintage lion cushion chart found on Etsy,by illkniterate, which you could use as a counted cross stitch pattern.
I love the alternative work of Susan from Red Gate Stitchery – and this cute PDF patchwork elephant is the perfect mix of pattern and silhouette.
Happy stitching x
