Over To You

Over to You Wellness stitching Just in time M M y son and his wife had their first child on Sunday, and I couldn’t believe it when your sister magazine, came through the door with the Furry Tales card kit inside. You have no idea how many things have happened in my life that when your mag or gets delivered there is something very appropriat­e to stitch that suits the situation. Keep up the good work ladies. Many thanks! Cross Stitch Crazy I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all at Crazy The World of Cross Stitching magazine. My little boy, Jack, and I have had to spend ten days in hospital this last week and it’s been really tough. However, I found having the trio of cards has really helped whilst being here. Stitching really does help clear the mind and kept me calm and focused which has been much needed to get Jack better. Anyone out there struggling may not feel like stitching, but if you just try ten little stitches, you will be amazed how much better you will feel. Thank you fellow cross stitchers! Just in time When Nan needed a card idea, arrived in the post Crazy Nan Bartlett, via email Approved! Both mags are glad to provide a project for all occasion! Tina: M y dog, Poppy, and I approve of the new environmen­tally-friendly packaging for the magazine! It’s a race to see who gets to the letterbox first. I’ve put the ‘All guests must be approved by the dog’ project by Durene Jones from the March 2020 issue (291) on my list of items to stitch. Thanks for a great mag full of inspiring projects. Jen Bonham, via email We’re so sorry to hear that you and your little boy, Jack, have been having such a difficult time and we hope you’re both feeling much better now.
