Needlework has never been cooler! Check out these fabulous new alphabet tapestry kits from Felicity Hall (available from 16th June)…

There are 26 in the new collection (as in, 26 letters of the alphabet! DURRR) and they’ll cost £8 each for a PDF chart, or £48 each for a full kit including canvas, needles and wools etc. I’m also a massive fan of the gorgeous Victorian sideshow-inspired fonts on Emily Peacock‘s new Curious Alphabet designs – and I love the fact that she has used the word ‘Phantasmagorical’ in her press release! Word of the week. – Ellie

I spoke to Emily this morning, and she revealed she’s working on some new designs – so watch this space! Have a look at her retro rock chic patterns, too:



The great thing about cross-stitch is that once you get the hang of it, you can just do it while you watch TV…my kinda hobby! – Ellie
