welcome!

February has arrived and with it a flurry of Valentine’s Day window displays, urging us to buy cards and gifts galore. Here at Love Embroidery, we like to do things a little differently, which is why issue 10 is filled with projects that celebrate romance in every corner of our lives. Stitch and sew a thoughtful gift for a friend with Becki Clark’s bride-to-be sash (p47) or send them a gorgeous geometric make-up bag (p55) in the post. Those with little ones on the way might like to stitch a baby bonnet (p28), or why not make your bedroom beautiful with Sophie Tarrant’s embroidered pillowcase set (p62).

Hello, sunshine! Looking at Elena Anich’s Sun design is soothing our soul this month. The soft tones and serene expression offer a calming retreat as we wait for sunnier days to appear. Not only that, the beautiful stitches provide a relaxing way to fill the evenings. Elena has stitched her sun in a multitude of colourways – we fell for the gentle pinks and greys in this version. You could keep things pastel with some soft blues or go wild with a rainbow of neons. It all depends on which colours bring you the most joy! How would you choose to stitch it? www.anicharthoop.etsy.com…
