Hello everyone – I’m Harriet, the new face at Quick&Easy Cross Stitch! First of all I want to say that I’ve been having a fantastic time since joining the team just over a month ago. Already I feel as though I’ve done the job for years! Everyone has been really welcoming and friendly, and it’s so great to be surrounded every day by people who love stitching as much as I do!
But the most exciting thing of all for me has been seeing my very first Q&E issue on sale in the shops! Issue 145 is out now, and it’s packed full of delicious designs that certainly make me want to whip out my needle and thread. I particularly love the nostalgic Kevin Walsh design, it has such a Christmas-is-around-the-corner feeling that I can almost smell the pine-needles! The pretty pink peonies are a great stitch too – wouldn’t they make a lovely gift for someone? And make sure you take a look at our Essentials section, crammed as usual with small, simple designs for busy people. I think the Topiary Alphabet is such a groovy idea!
I really hope you enjoy browsing through the new issue as much as I enjoyed working on it!
See you soon!
Harriet, design and technical editor, Quick&Easy Cross Stitch
