welcome!

I can’t tell you how much fun it’s been planning all the gorgeous seasonal makes we’ve got for you this issue (and the next!) now that I’m back on Love Embroidery. I have to admit, I might have had the ol’ Christmas tunes on a little early this year to get me in the festive spirit. How do you usually get ready for the holidays?

We’ve definitely got you covered there with mini crackers, sweet stockings and the like – but we’ve also focused on creating calm moments for ourselves this issue to counter one of the busiest (but most wonderful) times of the year. Personally, I’ll be taking some time to…

O’ Christmas tree We can’t tell if it’s the falling French knot snow or the luscious pine needles that’s pulling us into this hoop, but in we are! Hande Guner’s use of varying shades of green to create depth within the tree has us in awe. She’s perfectly balanced the hoop so that you feel like you’re peering into a winter landscape through a flurry of snow, while keeping that fresh, modern look that comes with a pared back design. You can stitch Hande’s hoop by picking up the full kit from her Etsy store, or by downloading the PDF to start embroidering tonight. www.hoopatelierstore.etsy.com IMAGE © HANDE GUNER, WWW.HOOPATELIERSTORE.ETSY.COM…
