Little Indulgences

On Friday I stopped into Barnes & Noble, and picked up the JCS ornament issue.  After looking through it, I think there are a few I might stitch...but at the same time, it seems that there really isn't much "new" out there.  Of course, I've got every ornament issue, plus a pile of freebies and other holiday patterns I've purchased over the years.
I also impulsively grabbed an issue of the British "World of Cross Stitching" magazine, partly because I was smitten by the little Fizzy Moon stocking bear freebie kit that was included.
So we'll see if I have any kind of follow-through on my holiday stitching plans...

Hey Erin.
I always add the issue to my library and I find that if I pick up the issue at another time I find diferrent ornaments that I like to stitch that I may not have liked when I first looked through it.
Happy Sunday!

I hope you enjoy your two mags :D and that you can find some more ornies on the JCS that you wish to stitch... or maybe it's just time to change to another mag for some variety ;)

Hugs,

I was excited to hear the new issue was out. Went on the hunt for it yesterday. No big surprise - it's not available here yet.
I always keep them around and ornaments I didn't find so interesting the year before somehow appeal this year. I am stitching an ornament from 1998 at the moment.

I have all of them up through when DS was born. I think I only have 1 or 2 since! ::sigh:: I know what you mean about feeling like there's not much new out there. (Guess it doesn't matter much, though, when you're not stitching (like me!).)
