It's that time of the month again

Magazine reviews, that is. Yay!

I do not have all my new mags where I am posting this, so will start with what I have.

The first issue we have up for review is World of Cross Stitching 132.

This is a really good issue. Our favorites are all getting prepped for Christmas in it, from Forever Friends to the Perfect Pets. The Perfect Pets are a pair of rats eating a Christmas plum pudding, very cute. And there is a lovely design from a new range called Alison's Animals. Its a cute little terrier and a kitty in a Christmas tree. I hope they have more designs like that. Also in the magazine is a pic of the Snowman, but it's the same one they always have, the little boy and the snowman flying through the air, so a little bit of a bummer. There is also a very sweet design of the Princess and the Pea. Designs like this make me wish I had a little girl to stitch for. Also in this issue and worth noting are 4 cute little wreath designs that would be great for ornaments. I like to look for ornament ideas, as one year, I will have a tree full on decorated with cross stitched ornaments. That is not working out real well, LOL, I think I have 3 done.

Sigh! One of those $14 magazines :o(

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
