Stitch­ing mes­sages with mean­ing…

Cross Stitcher - - Contents -

STITCH­ING FOR SOME­ONE is a lovely ex­cuse to pass on a spe­cial mes­sage. Hand­made cards are a great way to do this but even more sat­is­fy­ing is com­plet­ing and fram­ing a de­sign that will be there on the wall ev­ery day. Just think how long the quotes and mes­sages on an­tique sam­plers have lasted! We have high hopes that this month’s cover project (page 16) will find its way on to many walls to de­liver an in­spir­ing mes­sage. It is great to have the chance to travel the world but the word ‘ex­plore’ can mean so much more. We like to think this de­sign will be stitched for would-be ad­ven­tur­ers and even new arrivals in the world – a life of exploration must be some­thing most par­ents would love their chil­dren to have.

If you are still not con­vinced of the power of cross stitch to de­liver an im­por­tant mes­sage, then take a look at our bee-friendly flower sam­pler (page 77). Each flower is a joy to stitch as a sin­gle mo­tif and pro­vides a les­son in the best flow­ers to plant in our gar­dens this sum­mer to keep bee num­bers on the in­crease. Cross stitch and con­ser­va­tion in one go!

Happy stitch­ing!
