Over To You

Over to You Small kit, big love H i! These are cards and tags I’ve completed using my back issues library to use in the coming months. Hopefully the recipients will enjoy their individual­ly chosen designs. Having undergone three episodes of neurosurge­ry over the past two years, small stitching projects from your exclusive kits have helped me greatly during hospital stays and through a long recovery. All you need in one little packet! I’ve now moved on to a more challengin­g project of 36 colourful modern cat designs on French canvas for a cushion for myself. No doubt this’ll be delayed when another kit arrives! Small kit, big love Stitching mini kits helped Wendy during recovery In demand Wendy Bennett, Colchester T hought I’d send you a photo of the cross stitch I completed for my son’s 30th birthday. I was pleased with the end result. I also completed this for a friend’s wedding last year and my daughter has asked me to do it again for her friend’s wedding this year. Sue: It warms our heart that our coverkit gifts helped through your recovery. We think you’ll enjoy stitching this issue’s hygge Design Library – it’s full of cosy motifs that make great cards. Puppy love Ute couldn’t resist stitching this sweet Westie design for her friend Melanie Cordes, East Chesham Emily: It’s beautiful – I can see why you and your stitching are in hot demand! Puppy love Feeling the blues Clever Sue swapped out plum shades for blue FEELING THE BLUES H ello to The World of Cross Stitching I ’ve finally completed my 2019 cross stitch/quilting project. It’s made up of a photo panel and six of my favourite winter landscape pictures which I chose from my vast library of charts. I used two Maria Diaz pictures (shown here) and changed her original colours of plum shades to blues to fit my colour scheme. Each picture took two months to cross stitch. I really enjoyed making this quilt and everyone loves it. My 2020 project is well under way – Paris landmarks! team. When I saw the picture of the ‘Adorable Dog’ in your Christmas 2019 magazine (288), I knew I had to stitch it. A friend of mine was turning 60 and I just wanted to make something special. They have a Westie named Kenzo and sometimes I think he is their child. I had to get the exact fabric and so bought it in the UK and got to work. Sadly, I couldn’t get the exact same frame, but I think this one looks good too. I hope he likes it. Here’s the picture I made and a photo of the real Kenzo! Sue Randall, Southampto­n, UK Hannah: These cool tones are stunning. Can’t wait to see how your 2020 project is coming along – keep us updated!
