Cross Stitcher - - News - SU­SAN & MAR­TIN PENNY ED­I­TORS

IF YOU HAD TO PIC­TURE your dream home, what would it look like? For us a lovely gar­den is an ab­so­lute must. We don’ t get as much chance as we’ d like to work in our own but our chick­ens ap­prove as there’ s al­ways some­thing in­ter­est­ing for them to peck and scratch at. As for the ideal house, Su­san Bates’ dreamy de­sign on page 14 comes pretty close with its arched win­dows and ve­randa, sur­rounded with its glo­ri­ous gar­den in full bloom. You must try stitch­ing this on a blue fabric that makes us think of sum­mer skies! Maybe you dream of liv­ing over­seas? If so we have the per­fect mo­tif col­lec­tion for you. Take a look at all the cityscapes start­ing on page 74– there’ s ev­ery­thing from a Paris street to a Moscow mon­u­ment for you to stitch. Talk­ing of dis­tant places, we’ re thrilled with how many of you have got in touch to take part in our new Cross Stitcher Cor re­spon­dents fea­ture. It’ s amaz­ing get­ting a view of our bril­liant hobby from so many dif­fer­ent coun­tries around the world. Turn to page 38 to read all about st itc hers from Aus­tralia, Malaysia and more, and find out how you could take part too. Happy sum­mer stitch­ing!
