Those of you who regularly read this blog will know that from January 2011 I am going to be contributing regularly to the fabulous Cross Stitcher Magazine … in the form of a column and bespoke designed pieces…
This morning the first of those new editions hit my mat – and I could not have been more excited. The new look mag is going from strength to strength, and I was super chuffed with how the team had photographed my LOVE FLORAL CUSHION which was a joy to design.
In addition there is a 3 page ‘introductory article’ on Granny Knits and Me which gives a little insight into our crazy creative world.
The magazine this month also features some fantastic pieces from other designers – including a gorgeous monogram alphabet chart (in 2 different sizes) by Lesley Teare, which we think is perfect for personalising a little Christmas Present… like a towel or hanky.
Plus there is a little butterfly hand bag charm by the contemporary designer Felicity Hall, which my daughter has fallen in love with – and which complements beautifully some of the future pieces we have done in collaboration with the magazine…
Next month is our Swirly Stripey Tree and Bird designs… so keep an eye out for the latest pics….
You can buy the magazine at all good newsagents from tomorrow for £3.99 which is a bargain for all these charts… We have also done a Wool Version of the Kit on our site (the original is in evenweave and stranded cotton).
I am currently working on May… and cant wait to share all the exciting new things with everyone
