… to the September issue of Crazy! With this mag, I’m fulfilling a few of my own cross stitch fantasies – for instance, I’ve been itching to commission the steampunk-style animals on page 64 since before I became the editor here! I also feel as if my childhood fancies have come to life in the form of the kawaii make-up bag motifs on page 72. As a kid, I often played with pretend lipstick and mascara, so this cute set really takes me back. Of course, we have a few of my teammates’ dream projects in this issue, too. Lou is always excited when we feature cats, so she loves the life announcement cards on page 37. And Katie is absolutely bananas for birds, so I’m sure she’ll end up stitching…

over to you…

Susan Scott Littleborough Which project are you most proud of? The graduation piece that I stitched for my daughter, Hannah. She’s a massive fan of all things Disney, so I included a quote from Walt Disney. How would you describe your stitching style? Easy and relaxed. I mostly enjoy working with whole stitches and bold colours. Which occasion gets your needle twitching? Christmas, Easter and stitching for family. I start my Easter cards on Christmas day! When I’m not stitching, you’ll find me… Running – I’m training for a half marathon! How long ago did you start stitching? Christmas 1989, to be exact.
