Issue 243 of Cross Stitcher is out this week and we are thrilled to have our 6th cover this year! I love the WHISTLE WHILE YOU WORK design – simply because I was working in my new vintage colour palette.. and could not help but “hum a merry tune”
Those of you familiar with most of my work know of my love for rainbow brights – with most of my designs being in 12 key colours. I do this because I love them – but also it makes it easier on the purse strings of regular customers who only have to invest in one of our key palettes to get started.
The vintage palette will be new for Autumn 2011 – and I hope you like it as much as me, and I think the colours will be a great investment to mix and match in your stash. I will be sending an update on the blog so be sure to FOLLOW US in our new format on craftychatter.com to get the latest updates
The pattern as always will be available to download or you can pop out and buy your mag – which also features my latest column – as well as 4 more designs from me…
I also love the teacup pin cushion (by Maria Diaz) which is in this months issue…. Well done to Charlie and team for a fine read!
Happy Stitching x
