Making New Year resolutions…
A VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY tous! Asthisis our 300th issue, we’veenjoyed taking a nostalgic look back at 1992, our firstyearof publication. Turntopage9 to read our special feature about life on the magazine back then. We’vealso changed our picture on this page this month–here we are in our original editors’ photo from the very first issue!
It’ s been fun looking back, but the new year is also the best time to look forwards too, so we’ ve also enjoyed coming up with our ‘Top 10 Stitching Resolutions for 2016’ for you…
1 Write a bucket list of projects I want to do. 2 Try to finish one WIP before starting the next! 3 Design a project and send it to CrossStitcher. 4 Give up housework so I can spend even more time stitching. 5 Buy stitching supplies when I see them, even though I don’ t need them. 6 Get a subscription to CrossStitcher magazine. 7 Make all my cross stitch Christmas cards in June (well, at least start them by then!). 8 Learn how to make French knots. 9 Organise my threads before starting a project. 10 Use up all those leftover threads I already have in my stash on smaller projects.
