cross stitch gold

Love is in the air this month, and I'm not just talking about Valentine's Day… I'm in love with the beautiful projects in this issue, starting with our adorable duckling family on page 4. How cute are they?! Our sewing lady (p28) is full of gorgeous floral detail, and I am loving the sampler on page 44, too. It's a perfect way to mark Chinese New Year, and can also be used to make individual cards for birthdays – I've got a few in mind already. Let out your romantic side with our floral cupid silhouette on page 20, and stitch a courting couple as they secretly meet under the boughs of an old oak tree (p12). Or, if understated blooms are more your style, then I think you'll love our…

Meet the designer Carol Thornton Watercolour artist Carol sketches and paints her gorgeous works of art before turning them into cross stitch designs. She creates charts for various magazines and has attracted legions of fans who love her distinctive style of artwork, which translates beautifully into cross stitch. “This mother duck and her brood invoke feelings of love, spring, and new beginnings. I hope you enjoy the uplifting colours, too.” Stitcher’s guide This design is worked on 28-count white evenweave over two threads of the fabric in 25 shades of cotton. Cross stitch is in two strands of cotton, with lots of fractional stitches throughout. The backstitch is worked in one strand, and French knots also add extra detail in one strand.

My mum is a very talented dressmaker who not only used to make bridalwear, but made all of my clothes, and my siblings’, when we were children. In fact, she didn’t stop making the odd garment until I left home at the age of 20! Growing up, we were surrounded by a plethora of dressmaking patterns, and most were by Simplicity. When I saw this kit, I knew I had to stitch it for my mum. It will be her Christmas present this year and is so appropriate for her, particularly as she was the one who taught me how…
