Embracing change isn’t always easy, but when you know it’s on the horizon – like the approach of autumn – I’ve found the best way to deal with it is to lean in. So, while sunny summer days will always be my jam, the amount of loveliness we’ve curated for this issue has definitely warmed my heart. You’ll find makes to delight all the senses, from tactile needle punch and crochet to brightly hued knits and fibre art jewellery, and sweet yet tangy flavour sensations from Bake Off legend Kim-Joy. Plus, we’re diving head first into Christmas – yes, I said it! – with a mini mag full of sustainable projects, and the cutest cracker kit illustrated by the amazing Suzy Ultman. I guarantee by the time you’ve finished this issue, you’ll…

meet the maker artist and designer suzy ultman created our festive crackers

“I love creating characters, and I hope this set of friends gives your Christmas that extra ‘pop’. These fun cracker companions were inspired by the bright colours, simple designs and playful spirit of 60s and 70s wooden Christmas tree ornaments. The pom poms and glitter also add a bit of crafty vintage charm. The crackers can be used in so many ways – as stocking fillers, present toppers, Christmas tree ornaments and more. I’ll be customising mine with each person’s name, filling with special treats, and then setting them at the table as pretty placeholders for Christmas dinner. Hope you enjoy making them – happy holidays!” Find more of Suzy’s fun illustrations, makes and products on Insta @suzyultman and at www.suzyultman.com. Turn to page 92 to make your Christmas crackers, and share your…
