your gift festive puppy card kit

Brrrrr – capering around in the snow can be a chilly business! Luckily this cute pup has a loving family who have bundled him up cosily in a festive hat and scarf. Now he’s all ready for a winter frolic, and he’s brought his tiny robin friend along to join in the fun, too! Your fab kit contains everything you need to create this charming Christmas card, including threads, aida and an illustrated aperture card. You could make the card even more festive by adding dots of glitter glue onto the snowflakes. This adorable dog is a quick stitch, which is perfect for this busy time of year.

your letters

From me to ewe I recently finished a DMC chart called I Love You Too. I love sheep, so as soon as I saw it I fell in love with it and knew I had to buy it straight away. My husband really likes it too and we’re planning on hanging it in the bedroom once I’ve found a frame for it. Beverley Wilson, Wigan Alison says: I love sheep too, Beverley, and this cute design is just baa-rilliant! It should definitely take pride of place in your bedroom. I think I’ll be adding this one to my must-stitch list! In memoriam I wanted to share my latest project with you. I started stitching this in December 2016 for my dad.
