Welcome to the November issue!
Christmas time is upon us, so let’s celebrate! Following on from the spellbinding ‘Halloween at the Hag’s Hearth’ in last month’s issue, Sadie Brown speaks to Erika Pitera once again on page 8 to gear up for the festive season, as she takes a look at how Erika captures that same sense of magic in her diorama, ‘Waiting for Santa’. You are sure to be putting the finishing touches to your Christmas scenes, so we have some fabulously festive projects for you to try, including Maive Ferrando’s mini mince pies on page 30 that really do look good enough to eat, and Hazel Wyle’s super sleigh on page 56.
Elsewhere this issue, Moi Ali celebrates St Andrew’s day this month by creating some quick makes incorporating some traditional Scottish pieces; shortbread and a tartan rug. Plus, our friends across the pond will be celebrating another day this month – Thanksgiving. Sadie Brown has the perfect pecan pie project on page 44 for you to add to your Thanksgiving design.
All this plus plenty more fascinating reads, reader projects, competitions and more!
