SUE HANNAH TINA Star Letter TACKLING CHALLENGES H ello Team, I thought you might like to see my finished project. It is the most difficult work I have finished yet with cross stitch, satin stitch, French knots, backstitch and lazy daisies on 18-count aida and it has been a great challenge. Cross stitching has been part of my life since I was little and your magazine has inspired me to do more complex projects, what to do with them when they are finished and given me the confidence to display my work. I have been suffering from severe depression and this project has helped me through two very tough weeks. It is now framed and displayed in my bedroom and reminds me every morning that I can do it. Thank you so much. WOXS For the happy couple M y niece is getting married so I made this for them both as a record of their wedding day. I just have to get it framed ready for their big day. I hope they like it. Emily: That’s very sweet of you, Jennifer. What a lovely way for your niece and new partner to remember their special day. This is something that they will treasure for years and years to come. Jennifer Moville, UK Jacky Bouck-Standen, via email Hannah: When your mental health isn’t doing too great, everything’s a struggle.
