I can hardly believe we are about to post our festive issue of Stitch That and that I am designing for Christmas as we speak. I think this year has gone past so quickly – they say as you get older time goes even faster!
My wonderful team at Iconnet have been beavering away in the background creating a beautiful E-catalogue which will be viewable on my web site very shortly. It even includes video! What ever next?
I thought you would like to see some of the projects in Issue 82 of Stitch That – this is the magazine that our CSG members receive five times a year. If you want to become part of this amazing stitching community, just go to Join Us and find out more.
I know that many of you enjoy using decorated initials when creating your own gift cards so I have produced the complete alphabet as an initial chart. In the picture above, you can see that I have chosen some random letters to make three very different Christmas projects.
My husband, Bill, and I had a visit to the Alhambra Palace in Granada earlier this year and it was such an inspiration place – It was difficult to know where to start. I think I took over 100 photographs during our six hour stay. I have used some of our faux ivory buttons and an old mirror frame.
Will be in touch again shortly. I am now packing up ready for Creative Stitches & Hobbycrafts at Westpoint, Exeter 23-26 September. I will hope to see some of you there next week. Happy stitching till then.
