Issue 85 has hit newsstands and it’s packed with seasonal goodness. Now it’s October we can talk openly about Christmas and no longer have to whisper the word. This issue we’ve embraced all that is festive, from our kitsch Christmas stocking cover star, to a Scandi-style advent calendar, and kawaii Christmas decs.
We want to be warm and cosy during colder months, so we’ve got lots of projects to keep you toasty. You’ll find tutorials for penguin mittens, a crochet cushion and tassel scarf in the mag. Now you just have to decide which project to start first…

2018 calendar and stickers
We’ve got an early Christmas present for you – a 2018 calendar designed by interiors stylist Tamsyn Morgans. It’s filled with beautiful photography and easy-to-make projects, to give you lots of inspo throughout the year. There’s a different seasonal project for each month, so you’ll have plenty to fill your to-make list. Kick off the year with a wish jar, make fabric hearts in Feb, and mini terrariums for summer. Did we mention that it comes with free botanical stickers? Because calendars need their own accessories too.
Discover all that’s Scandi with Hayley Southwood
Hayley Southwood’s home may be in Swanbourne but it could be straight out of Stockholm, with its Scandi-inspired decor. We took a look round the Southwood Stores founder’s home, specially decorated for a Nordic Christmas. We met our new BFF (best furry friend), Sid the Schnauzer, too.
Embrace tradition with Cherry Press
We head over to the Cotswolds to meet David Lewis and his wife Amie, owners of Cherry Press. Their traditional letterpress business is based in a vintage-inspired studio, where they make wedding, business and gift stationery collections using traditional printing techniques.
