over to you…

Emily Tower USA Which project are you most proud of? I’m most proud of a Noah’s Ark quilt I stitched for my daughter while I was expecting her. My husband was deployed to Iraq with the US Army at the time, and it kept my mind focused on the wonderful things to come. Who do you most like to stitch for? I love to stitch for my friends and family. I enjoy giving gifts that have taken time, and that can be personalised with my loved ones’ favourite colours and activities! Which occasion gets your needle twitching? Anything, I suppose! As long as I’m breathing, my needle is twitching. I always have a project or three underway! Who’s your favourite character to stitch? Santa Claus! He’s one of my favourite symbols of the holiday season. Chui Ling Mak Singapore Which…

your fab gifts jolly robin gift tag kit

Christmas can be one of the busiest times of the year – just ask this family of robins! These sweet birds are hurrying about to get ready for the holidays, hanging stockings and baubles, setting out candy canes and making sure the mistletoe is fixed just so – it’s no wonder one of them literally has his skates on! All of this zooming about will be worth it, of course, once they get their festive to-do list done and they settle down to enjoy the spirit of the season together. Requiring whole stitches and backstitch only, each design can be stitched in a single sitting – useful if you too are hurrying about! Once you’ve finished creating this little troupe of Christmas birds, use double-sided tape to attach each finished stitch…

your letters

You are a winner! Gill Crisp Star letter Wit and Wise-dom Hi everyone at Crazy! Here’s my latest finish – Morecambe and Wise! I hope the photo is ok. It took me ages to get a clear image! Anyway, the chart was a Janlynn design chosen by and for my son-in-law, as he loves their kits. Hopefully you’ll think that this project is good enough to print on the Letters page in Crazy! I really enjoyed stitching it. Gill Crisp, Wednesbury Rachel says: I love this stitchy Morecambe and Wise! It’s kind of you to stitch this great design for your son-in-law, Gill – it sounds like the two of you have a fun relationship. He made a great choice of chart, too – the taken aback look on Ernie Wise’s face really captures his…
