Over To You

Over to You With respect Ready, steady, go! Denise’s great nephew is in for a real treat with this stitchy game T hought you might like to see my latest cross stitch. It took quite a while to do, but I think it is worth it. Mrs Veronica Wilson, Norfolk Sue: Agreed, Veronica! This is a very powerful piece. I think that the commemorat­ive ‘VE Day’ project by Lesley Teare in 293 (May 2020) might be just up your street. WOXS READY, STEADY, GO! T hought you might like to see the ‘Fairytale Board Game’ from 242 (June 2016) I have made up for my great nephew for Christmas. As you can see, I have customised it a little for him. The dice I have made up with perforated plastic, backing each side to give them some rigidity, and the counters are made up as Dorset Crosswheel Buttons. Hannah: What a wonderful gift this will be for your great nephew to unwrap on Christmas day! The special dice and counters are a nice extra touch, too. If you fancy stitching another board game, check out our woodlandth­emed take on Snakes and Ladders on page 74.

Winter wonderland Email us at: theworldof­xstitching@ immediate.co.uk H ello Team I’m so happy with this beautiful project from issue 287 (December 2019). This winter scene will be hung up in my home all year long. I love to see snow falling down outside my windows. Amanda Butler has created a real magical work of art with three of my favourite animals. I love how the deer, robin and rabbit stand out among the cool winter colours. Thank you.
