… to the March issue of Crazy! I love this time of year – winter melts into spring as we snuggle up on our sofas, planning new stitchy projects for the season ahead!I hope you’ll join us and get stuck into something new this month, too – perhaps our adorable pair of bears on page 10, or the colourful koi carp on page 42. They look ever so chic when framed in simple wooden hoops!Of course, this month also means Mother’s Day, and I’ll be treating my mum to a card from our set of supermum cards and tags – have a look on page 28. And for any new babies due this spring, try Sosae Caetano’s fun birth sampler banner on page 72. But be sure to take some…

Star letterYou are a winner! M KingThis reader says she just had to stitch our train!Choo-choo!As soon as I saw this in issue 248, I just had to make it. I particularly liked the wheels and managed to find the exact buttons online. I changed the colours slightly as I like more traditional Christmas shades, and I added a bit of sparkle with the gold thread. It was quite fun to make, although it nearly didn’t survive as our Westie decided to sit on it. Thank you for a great project!M King, MorayAlison says: This looks absolutely amazing – and we’re pleased that it held up even when faced with your Westie! We loved seeing this lovely finish. Fiona, who designed this project, was over the moon!Marilyn loved how easy…
