A Note From the Editor

Autumn in Indiana brings cooler temperatures and opportunities to enjoy a few of my favorite things: sweater weather, Friday night football games, drives through the countryside to admire the display of colorful leaves, visiting the local pumpkin patch and corn maze, and piping-hot mugs of spiced apple cider. Of course, it also means Halloween, one of our favorite holidays, is just around the corner!

No matter what you love about the autumn season, this issue of Just CrossStitch showcases a lovely assortment of designs featuring traditional autumn and Halloween motifs that you'll want to stitch. Vibrant autumn leaves are featured on the Colorful Leaves Biscornu and the Fall Leaves Monogram Set. Woodland Friends, Autumn Cat and Cheeky Chipmunk are just a few of the cute critters making their appearance in the issue. Halloween enthusiasts will enjoy a few quick-stitch projects to complete in time for the holiday. And not to be missed, the next stitch-along installments of the sensational Floral Band Sampler and exquisite House for a Wife, a Huswif projects will provide endless stitching pleasure.

So, go ahead! Pick your favorite projects and let the fun begin. And be sure to share your progress with us on Facebook. We truly enjoy seeing photos as you stitch along with these projects. Please keep sharing! You can find us and tag us at

Until next issue, friends,

Tanya Fox, editor

Tanya Fox has served as editor of various Annieís publications since 2006 and editorial director since 2016.

She said, "I have enjoyed stitching and creating art of all kinds since very early in life. My earliest creative memory is of sewing doll clothes with my mom and grandmother. I learned embroidery and cross-stitch from my great grandmother in my early teens starting with simple stamped designs and progressing to projects on stitched on Aida and linen. I truly love that whether Iím working with fabric and floss, yarn or paper, there's always something new to learn. Part of what makes stitching so enjoyable is sharing what I know and learning from others."

Tanya is a native of Indiana, and she and her husband, Jim, have six children.
