Do you stitch from magazines?? Which are your favorites? Why do you like them? Do you read your magazine cover to cover? Well, I subscribe to 3 needlework magazines: Just Cross Stitch, Cross Stitch and Needlework and Sampler and Antique Needlework. I love them all for different reasons but obviously because they are cross stitch magazines. I fell in love with the Menorah Pattern in Just Cross Stitch and had to stitch it. It is designed by Sharon Pope. I stitched it on PTP Gothic fabric with the recommended DMC fibers. Sorry for the bad pick but I took a quick snap before it heads to the framers.
Alot of the magazines give you finishing instructions, great charts, interviews with designers and some history about different types of needlework. If you haven't browsed one of these publications I highly recommend it. Most shops carry them and I have found some at Barnes and Nobles and now Target even carries Just Cross Stitch :)
Thank you all for stopping by and visiting my blog. Happy Stitching!
