The lady's progression...
And since I was off on Wednesday, I decided to take a trip to Chapters. Bad idea - I should know better than to go there. So, of course, I couldn't resist picking up some new mags. ;-)
As if I need more...
I haven't seen 'Cross stitch and needlepoint' before, but it's got a cute stitcher's trio with a needlecase in the shape of a mouse's house.
Nor have I seen 'Stoney Creek cross stitch collection' before, but I was drawn in by the wildflower design on the front.
I couldn't resist 'The cross stitcher' (US) - it has a kitten afghan!
'Cross stitch crazy' included a booklet with "thank you" mini designs - though most of them could be stitched for other purposes.
'CrossStitcher' (UK) included a free thread pack with cards - I can't say I cared for the designs they featured in the mag (that were intended for the free gift), but I'm definitely going to be using the materials (that is, if I don't "misplace" (read: lose) them first... ;-)
And finally, 'Just cross stitch' featured a few traditional samplers, as well as The Sampler's Girl's "Persuasion Sampler."
