I am so lucky this year to be working with Anita Jeram. She is the illustrator behind the much-loved children’s classic – ‘Guess How Much I Love You’. Thanks to this, her bunnies are instantly recognisable. We launched Anita’s range with four bunny designs in our Autumn Collection. We worked them on even weave, and you have that as an option, although the standard kit is supplied with 14 count Aida. I asked Anita if she does any stitching…
‘I am delighted to see my art in cross stitch form. I am not a very neat or careful stitcher, and prefer the immediacy of drawing, but my mum was an avid cross stitcher. She would have adored these kits! We have a few of her completed projects around the house, from bookmarks to cushions, and I am reminded of her in every one of those stitches. I hope these new kits bring a smile to those that work on them.’
You can view all of Anita’s range at the following link:
This year my birthday wish list was for Anita Jeram giftware….and what a lucky lady I was. As you see Anita’s designs featuring mice, cats, hedgehogs, birds, bees…are equally adorable!
What prompted this blog is an exciting package that arrived in The Bothy this morning. It is some more of Anita’s designs ‘hot off the hoop’! These will all be available next year and include a wedding and birth sampler.
