Spring clean your stash and get stitch­ing…

Cross Stitcher - - News -

NOTH­ING COM­PARES WITH choos­ing your next project. Shop­ping for ma­te­ri­als, the smug feel­ing if you find you al­ready have the re­quired colours, and then get­ting your­self sorted to start. We stitch­ers know that it’ s not just about the lovely de­sign that will fill our fab­ric but it is all about lov­ing the process of cre­at­ing it and watch­ing it grow. It’s al­most like read­ing a good book– speed­ing through the chap­ters but not re­ally want­ing to come t othe end. How many of us have sat up late say­ing “I’ ll just fin­ish one more block of blue ,” or “this lit­tle flower mo­tif won’ t take long ,” only to find time has flown and it is way past bed time?

We want Cross Stitch er to be about this sheer plea­sure of stitch­ing. We work hard to bring you the de­signs you love and al­ways in­vite you to sug­gest more themes (our con­tact de­tails are be­low ). This month we thought you’ d en­joy some­thing to make you smile while you stitch, so we’ ve acute idea on page 2, to make some bob bins us­ing the tem­plate we’ ve pro­vided. We hope you like our lit­tle ele­phants!

Happy stitch­ing!
