If you believe the glossy weekend supplements, cross stitching has taken over knitting as the fashionable craft of the day. If this tempts you to have a go, or if you've been a lifetime devotee, you will probably be interested in Emily Peacock's cross-stitch kits, which include this Rodeo design. Its use of old typefaces gives it a vintage poster feel, but one with a modern inspirational message.
Emily Peacock is working on a ready-to-buy collection for next year, but until then you'll have to do it yourself. The kit provides the canvas, alongside quality wool and a colour chart. The 46 x 46 cm design may take a while to complete but, as it says, the secret is to enjoy the ride.
The kit costs £42 to buy online
