Just CrossStitch Updates
|Just Stitchin'||Free Project||Reader Feedback||The Last Stitch|
How's everyone's end-of-summer coming along? Have all your kids gone back to school? For you stay-at-home moms and retirees, are you enjoying the quietness of days and getting more stitching done? We're hard at work in the final stages of your favorite holiday issue, JCS Christmas Ornaments 2015! Seeing all of these beautifully creative ornaments and all of their fancy finishing styles had me thinking about buttons and beads and Memory Thread -- oh my! (You have to read that in a Wizard of Oz frame of mind.) Although most of us don't use them much in our everyday stitching, the holidays bring out some fun in us stitchers. If you're like me, you find yourself grabbing and buying up all sorts of embellishments to enhance your ornaments and cross-stitch gifts. Read on for some helpful tips, tricks and tutorials for embellishing your stitching.
In this issue, I'll report some exciting updates on the Annie's Craft Festival, and there's a sampler-inspired Be Thou Thankful free project for you to add to your stash. I hope you enjoy reading this update as much as I did preparing it for you. I'm so very ready for all Just CrossStitch has to share lately! Are you?
To Oz, Toto!
