10 Beautiful cross stitch designs to tackle this autumn

All based on beautiful watercolours from John Clayton, here are 10 excellent cross-stitch designs to tackle this autumn.

Creating traditional, nostalgic results, each design is full of colour and lovely scenery.

All kits arrive with pre-sorted and carded stranded cottons and aida fabric. Easy-to-follow instructions are also included!

1. Ford Way

A beautiful entry to start, our first design offers the chance to work on rewarding little details you will love stitching together.

Lovely bridge, swans and a cute cottage lined by speckles of pink foliage remind us of quieter times.

Once finished, share with others or give it pride of place in your home.

2. High and Dry

A seaside scene many of us may have encountered, perhaps on an autumnal adventure or two, our next design has an intriguing nautical theme to it.

Waiting for the tide to come back in, a collection of boats rest just off the coastline close to a quiet seaside town.

3. Sleepy Village

Locals are out and about in our next design, making the most of the weather.

4. Village Lane

Featuring a horse and cart, our next design is a lovely slice of traditional country life.

No cars to be seen anywhere, this lovely cross-stitch harks back to a time when life moved at slightly slower pace.

5. Autumn Light Stag

A noble stag stands at the heart of this next design, surrounded by lush autumnal colour.

Sun hovering off in the distance, it is easy to imagine this scene occurring in wilderness of the Scottish Highlands.

6. Windmill

A lone windmill punctuates the landscape in our next lovely design.

Cottage lying just behind, these are the only two signs of civilisation in a lovely design capturing the wide-open spaces of the country perfectly.

7. Autumn Reflections

Taken from another jaw-dropping watercolour from John Clayton, our next design is as autumnal as they come.

Beautiful orange and brown foliage towers high above a distance bridge with birdlife adding further interest, gliding over mirror-like water.

8. The Old Pump

Once lying at the heart of the community, our next design depicts a village water pump at the end of a charming street.

Quite a calming image, there is not a soul to be seen in this lovely picture.

9. Haystacks

Another beautiful country scene reminding us of harvest time, this lovely design features a couple of Haystacks, a curious pheasant and dainty poppies adding a smattering of colour.

10. Lakeside Village

A church rises high above neighbouring buildings in our final entry. Surrounded by trees with a great lake off into the distance, this John Clayton painting really is something special!
