Ever heard of them? It's new term to me, but it seems to be the 'in' thing just now. It's basically a very thick magazine that looks just like a paperback book. Future publishing released a bookazine of Joan Elliot designs that went flying off the shelves in the UK and I was lucky enough to be able to get my grubby little mitts on one here in the US.
It is 196 pages of Joan's wonderful designs. I'm a big fan of Joan Elliott, her work is amazing. So after I bought the bookazine I spent all evening drooling over this magazine and wishing I had more time to stitch (doesn't that sound familiar?) Joan has a blog which can be found here where you can find all her latest designs and chart corrections.
And just to make matters worse, a few weeks aftre releasing the Joan Elliott bookazine, Future publishing then decides to put out another bookazine, this time of Margaret Sherry designs!
So, of course I just had to go and hunt down a copy of that darn bookazine too! Although the magazines (can't quite get comfortable calling them bookazines!) are rather pricey, they are wonderful. Margaret Sherry's characters are amazing and there is such humour in her designs. The animals have such adorable expressions on their faces and I have added several of the cat designs to my never ending to-do list! I wasn't able to find a blog for Margaret Sherry but I know she is on Facebook, so if anyone wants to friend request her you can. And...if you are friend requesting Margaret, you might as well add me too! lol
So, when I haven't been drooling over a Joan Elliott design or a Margaret Sherry design, what have I been working on? Well, I have been working on some Tangled Threads designs. This is what I have been stitching the last couple of nights.
I was hoping to get a lot more stitched last night, but ended up watching So You Think You Can Dance, and it's one of those programs where you have to watch (unlike some movies or shows where you can just listen and keep on stitching) so I only stitched during the adverts, which is why there isn't very much stitching to see! Hopefully I'll get more done tonight.
Thanks for visiting!
Until next time...happy stitching!
