And now on to our fabulous WINNER for December 2023... Congratulations Caroline!
My name is Caroline, and I first started stitching when I was in school. I didn’t do anymore until I was in my mid-thirties, married with twins, and a stay at home mum! This was until the twins started school and I started back at work.
When we moved house about 9 years ago I discovered Caterpillar Cross Stitch (more or less at the bottom of my home lane!) and I haven’t looked back. I love Caterpillar Cross Stitch, the Historical Sampler Company and Stitchrovia.
I’m a sucker for a nice pattern, and I have a study full of projects waiting to be stitched. I love to hang up completed patterns and often gift specific ones to friends as birthday or Christmas presents.
My favourite colour is red (any hue), and my least favourite colour is pink! I often change pink threads to a hue I like, and often change colours if I find them too pale.
I will have to live until aged 100+ to finish the projects I have accumulated over the years! I find it easy to start new projects, but occasionally have to make myself finish one before starting anything new.
I love stitching and find it so relaxing, satisfying, and rewarding. I'm now starting to get ready for Christmas with lots of baking and cross stitching. Onwards and upwards!
If you would like to join over 18,000 stitchers in the Facebook group, please click here. Well done Caroline, we hope you enjoy your £20 Caterpillar Cross Stitch gift voucher!
Nominations are now open for our next Stitcher of the Month competition, I can't wait to see your submissions and find out more about our lovely community.

As 2023 draws to a close, I wanted to take a moment to slow down, reflect, and acknowledge the wonderful, busy year we've had.
Firstly I want to say a huge thank you to our fantastic Caterpillar community. I cannot believe that Caterpillar Cross Stitch turned 8 this year! We're so grateful that you've stuck with us, and we cannot thank you enough for your continuous love and support.
