… to the December issue of Crazy! I’m so excited to be at the helm of your favourite cross stitch mag – we’re going to have so much fun together! I’m also pleased that my first issue as Editor contains so many wonderful festive projects, from the exclusive The Snowman™ cross stitch scene on page 10 to the colourful Christmas Eve box for kids on page 66. If you’re in need of a quick-to-stitch gift or card, you’ll love our winter forest gift ideas on page 20, as well as the fun Assisi-style mitten alphabet on page 47. Then, to deck your halls in stitches, turn to page 54 for a set of fuzzy arctic animal hoops, and to page 37 to make a wintry folk art wreath. And be sure…

This adorable scene, created in Margaret Sherry’s signature heart-warming style, is a fun, quick-to-stitch project perfect for the run-up to Christmas. The small design has plenty to keep your interest, including a few fractionals and plenty of delicate backstitch to create the mice’s fur and whiskers.

your letters

Star letter You are a winner! Andrew Hatton A totally roar-some gift This is my latest project – it’s a door plaque for a wee chap called Fergus. His parents have done a jungle theme for his room and this is a first birthday present for him. It took ages because I’ve lost some vision in my right eye, so while I charted it up a few months back it’s taken until now to finish. It came out well, though! The flipping aida split a bit, but his mum’s happy with it, so it’s all good. Andrew Hatton, Turkey Alison says: Amazing job, Andrew. You’re a very talented designer, and Fergus is going to love having this hanging in his room as he grows up. Well done! Penguin pal I just received the latest issue of Crazy and…
