Revisiting my magazine freebies

As I've said before, it's always interesting to revisit your stash. you find stuff you forgot you even had, or inspiration will strike with something you were previously at a loss to use.

I've had plenty of magazines in the past, including two subscriptions. The one thing that you will get with craft mags, is a free gift on the front. With cross stitching mags it is usually a chart or mini kit, like the bird kit that started my cross stitch obsession. Papercraft mags have a wider range, from stamps to bowmakers, papers to charms (though not many of those anymore for some reason), embossing folders, dies, scoring boards, the list is almost endless. So, if like me you buy a lot of the magazines, you amass a lot of these freebies. I tend to be slightly more selective now, though if a free gift catches my eye it still ends up in my stash.

Today's post illustrates some of the freebies I've had. These have been in my stash for over a year now (shame). The first selectio…

I'm back! Sort of...

Here is where I currently am on the Beauty and the Beast stitch. I have a feeling it will last me till at least the end of 2016 the way it's going.


Honestly I work on it for hours yet it feels like I'm making no progress at all. I decided to make a Christmas piece of jewellery the other day. Originally it was going to be some earrings, just something simple, but upon searching through my stash I realised that I didn't have any matching Christmas charms, so I decided to make a necklace instead. I got one of my little bottl…

Apologies

Apologies for the lack of post at the moment. I've been working on the stitch and I've made a bottle necklace but unfortunately my camera has decided to give up the ghost so it's a bit pointless posting about makes without being able to put them on here!

As soon as I'm up and running I'll be posting a new post.

Sorry again
