I did promise a craft magazine round up of a couple of mags I bought recently and what I like about them. The first one I have is Cross Stitch Crazy. Of all the cross stitching mags this is usually one that has the most for me as there is a lovely selection of projects that are short and ones that take longer. This month - the March issue 252 cost £4.99 has a free gift which I have stitched.
My second magazine is Simply knitting and there are a couple of jumpers I really liked in this issue and some colour ways I like to - see pictures below. Some of these I am going to try on my cards.
- This is issue 182 and costs £5.99 and it included some sort knitting needles in wood on the front which I have given to a friend whose granddaughter is learning to knit.
I really like this jumper and think the white lines on the pattern look very interesting. I also liked a toy giraffe pattern.
I haven't got anything to show as a make from this magazine ....yet but you never know! I caught up on the Great British Sewing Bee which is starting series 5 and I am definitely tying into this one on BBC Tuesday evenings. I already have next months magazines ready to review in a couple of weeks so look out for an article on that in early March. I am also going to the Farnborough Make It show and the Knitting and Stitching show in Olympia in March so I am sure I will be absolutely bursting with new ideas for projects and pick up on the current trends as well as some old favourites.
