Miniature Motifs are small designs which can be turned into delicate tree ornaments, pin badges, decorations for cards, pincushions, needlebooks and many more. Perfect for quick gifts and ideal for travelling, the possibilities are limited only by your imagination...

In England, red squirrels only live in selected places in the North East and North West but until the early twentieth century, they were a common sight across the country. In Honeyapple Meadow, red squirrels bound through the Arboretum and in autumn can be seen tucking into juicy blackberries, before the hunt for more acorns continues...

Autumn Squirrel uses cross stitch, French knots, back stitch and straight stitch. Each stitch is explained using clear diagrams and step-by-step instructions.

The ornament and pin cushion pictured were worked on Zweigart 32ct Antique White linen, finished with scraps of fabric and ribbon from Bethany's stash. The pin badge was worked on Zweigart 56ct White linen.
