Magazines are like buses!

Just like buses, you wait for ages for a magazine,  then two come along at the same time! That's just what happened with my magazines. I had World of Cross Stitching issue 191 and issue 192 delivered the same day......and you just know that no housework got done that day!!!

Here's the alphabet I had in issue 191....

This was a lovely alphabet to design, all those sweet little bird houses in such lovely pastel colours. A joy to design and, hopefully, a joy to stitch!

And in issue 192....

.....a lovely summery barbeque alphabet! Bright bold colours with all those quintessential BBQ supplies and, of course, hot dogs and burgers!!!

So having read both magazines from cover to cover,  I now have to decide whether to get some stitching done or to catch up with the housework that didn't get done earlier. Can you guess which one I'll choose?!!!

Until next time...happy stitching!

I Adore the English cross stitch magazines. In Italy I can find them. I subscribed to Cross Stitch Collecion. It is fabulous.

Wow, congratulations on being published twice on the trot.

Just for future reference it is ALWAYS stitching first, housework eventually. When you move the dust it only comes back again so what's the point? Leave it where it

I know if it were me, I'd be stitching, lol. Hope you enjoy your stitching, Rhona. I like the birdhouses better, btw. I do like to grill out though, so the BBQ alphabet should make me hungry!!!

I'm sure it was housework ... NOT
Congrats on those publications. I especially liek the bird house alphabet which I wouls stitch if I had a time turner or something.

And there I was moaning my issue 193 didn't arrive Monday like it should! We really are spoilt in the UK aren't we?! Love both your alphabets, also the camper van you had in a recent Craftseller mag (guess you're still waiting for that to hit your shores?). Happy stitching! Helen
