As much as I hate to be pushing Christmas down people's throats in August (ridiculous), I am so excited to finally show you what I have been working on!
The rather glamourous lady above is Miss Prance-a-Lot, and she is a project from my new book - Stitch the Halls! It is a lovely little collection of modern Christmas decorations and I absolutely cannot wait for you all to see it. The book is a little smaller than Storyland Cross Stitch, and there are no stories in this one, but instead there are a bunch of new stitches for you to try out and it is crammed full of bite-sized projects that will provide instant gratification for any stitchy cravings you may have.
The official launch is in September, but I will be getting exclusive advance copies for my shop (I expect them in the coming week), so if you want one before anybody else then this is the place to be. You can place your orders now and I will send them out as soon as they arrive.
So do you want a sneak peek of what's inside? Of course you do!
There are modern, neon projects:
Understated, sophisticated projects:
Classic red and white projects:
An Advent Tree:
A Polar Parade:
And a tonne of inspiration to keep your hands and your imagination equally busy.
So if you are one of those crafters I keep hearing about who is organised enough to start making things for Christmas now (i.e. so that they are actually ready in time, rather than my method of leaving it until the last minute and ending up still stitching at silly-o-clock on Christmas Eve...), then you can hop over to the shop and order your copy now.
I hope it has been worth the wait!
