Start­ing a ‘new term’ of stitch­ing…

Cross Stitcher - - Welcome -

HOW DO YOU FEEL about au­tumn? Are you sad to see the last of the sum­mer flow­ers fade, breath­ing a sigh of re­lief that the kids are back at school, or qui­etly sat­is­fied that you’ve re­mem­bered to add a day­light bulb to your shop­ping list? Even as adults, we still get that ‘new term’ feel­ing – and not just be­cause we’ve had to buy so many new school uni­forms. So let’s call this the start of a new term for cross stitch. We won’t force you to write ex­tra neatly on the first page of a new ex­er­cise book but we do hope you will want to make a list of all the new projects you’d like to try. A larger – but oh-so-sat­is­fy­ing – project for your list is our Tree of Life cush­ion ( page 14), fea­tured on the cover. We love the idea of com­bin­ing this pow­er­ful sym­bol with a beau­ti­ful au­tum­nal tree. The stylised leaves are great to tackle in blocks – you know, the kind of blocks where you prom­ise you’ll stitch just one more and then look at the clock sur­prised to find it’s turned mid­night. As al­ways, we’d love to hear what’s at the top of your list. Happy stitch­ing.
