I was originally doing Baby Donald and Daisy , but I just couldn't get a proper feel for the charts, despite wanting to do them.
I recently received my last issue of Cross Stitcher magazine (for the foreseeable future at least). After reading the mag for over 15 years ,and for a lot of that time considering it to be the best of the British stitching mags , I cancelled my subscription.They changed the format of the magazine last year , and I decided to give it until Christmas to see if I could get on with the new look. Just after Christmas , I decided I didn't like it and after a couple of weeks , I canceled .Unfortunately , I'd just paid for another quarter ,and they don't refund , they just send the issues that you're owed , so this is my last one.
It is no longer a cross stitching mag . I know we are all experimenting with different finishes etc ,and it's nice to get new ideas , but not for the whole magazine and not when it changes it so completely . I have to say , that none of the issues I received after my decision to cancel did anything to change my mind . It's quite sad really.
Anyway , the free kit in this issue was a fox , which I quite liked so decided to stitch it . The aida that came with it was horrendous , not cut straight and it wouldn't have been straight even if it was cut straight , so I used a square I had in my stash.Then I opted to do it again in slightly different colours , lol. They have been claimed by the kids now .
I have started a new small project , so I'll be back with pics soon , and also to show some pics from our recent days out .
Thanks for dropping by . hopefully normal service will now be resumed , lol .
