Making New Year res­o­lu­tions…

Cross Stitcher - - News -

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.
