Test­ing times at Christ­mas…

Cross Stitcher - - News - SU­SAN & MARTIN PENNY EDITORS P.S. We love to hear about your cur­rent stitch­ing projects! Send your let­ters and photos to crossstitcher@den­nis.co.uk

WE AL­WAYS TEST our projects to make sure they ar­eas good as they can be. Not only do we spend a lot of time mak­ing sure the charts are easy to stitch from, we also aim to have the most de­li­cious de­signs for you to try. All the projects have to be ap­proved by ev­ery­one in the of­fice and the lovely team of ladies that stitch for us.

This month a‘ guest’ mem­ber of our team as­sessed the projects in rather a dif­fer­ent way. Archie, our of­fice corgi, was look­ing very pleased with him­self! The red and white sugar crumbs all around his mouth told us that he’ d very thor­oughly tested our new Ad­vent cal­en­dar( page 23). There wasn’t a candy cane left in any of the lit­tle stitched pock­ets. Not con­tent with test­ing one project, he also de­cided to chew the‘ trunks’ of our Sc and i-style Christ­mas trees (page 57). Thank good­ness we’ d al­ready done the pho­tog­ra­phy for this very fes­tive is­sue.

Thank fully Archie hasn’ t suf­fered any ill ef­fects from his candy feast, and we would of course rec­om­mend keep­ing sweets away from pets. Don’t even ask about the Christ­mas Eve we spent at the vet’s af­ter Archie beat Santa Claus to the mince pie and sherry!

Happy stitch­ing!

Use our snow globes to whip up a flurry of fes­tive tree decs!
