Sit down, pour yourself a cuppa and relax… If this is your favourite way of grabbing a bit of ‘me time’, then you’ll love Lucie Heaton’s ‘Life is Like a Cup of Tea’ sampler featuring wonderful typography. Stitch this upbeat quote to lift spirits in your own home or gift it to a friend this spring. Worked in whole stitches and fractionals as well as backstitches, this would be perfect for an advanced beginner or intermediate stitcher. When finished, the sampler measures 20.5×25.5cm (8x10in) stitched on 14-count fabric, and 53 lucky winners will receive a PDF chart (worth £4.75). For more of these sweet and imaginative designs, head to Lucie Heaton’s website.
