welcome

By the time January rolls around, I’m always ready to jump into everything a new year brings – the positive feel of a fresh start, the promise of spring, and far too many resolutions. This year though, I’m trying to do things differently. So, in this month’s issue we’re still embracing the new, showcasing creative makes like our floral resin earrings. But, we’re also taking time to be in the present with projects that help focus on the here and now.Take inspiration from our cosy leopard cover star and layer up, get outside and enjoy the crisp, cold air.

MEET THE MAKER FIBRE ARTIST JESSIE DOUGHTY CREATED THIS MONTH’S CRAFTY PENNANT “When I think about how crafting makes me feel, I always come back to the word ‘meraki’, which means to ‘do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work’.

I take a lot of inspiration from mindfulness – my workspace is full of postcards and pieces of art that have positive mantras on them. Creativity is contagious. That’s why I chose the quote that I did for the design.This stellar little pennant is a great way to improve your stitching precision and practice (or learn, if you’re a beginner) whipped…
