Happy Christmas from CrossStitcher!

Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house... were stitched decorations and beautiful homemade gifts! We'd like to wish our readers a fantastic Christmas and New Year, and hope you've all enjoyed working on our festive projects as much as we have.

Don't forget our January issue hits the shops on 27 December and is packed full of exciting stitching ideas for 2013 - it's guaranteed to shake off those post-Christmas blues faster than you can thread a needle!
