In this issue you’ll find some projects that can be whipped up in an afternoon: Let it Snow (cross stitch), Polish Santa (cross stitch), Gift Card Pockets (sewing and embroidery), Flowers (kanzashi) and plenty of cool ideas in fabric-adabra on wrapping and making gifts with ‘fabric pages’ (sewing).
The rest of the projects will take a little longer… but so well worth the time invested! 2 quilts, 2 Fair Isle mitten patterns, 3 variations on a scarf motif, and 3 smocked and 3 beaded tree ornaments. You know there’s more…crochet, bargello, canvaswork, wet felting, and Swedish weaving!
