When we were at nanas we went to Michaels so she can pick up some things and we got there right when they were closing. As soon as we walked out of the store and they had closed the store bug tells me she has to go potty. Really?? There was a B&N across the way so we shot over there so she could go to the bathroom. Of course, once we got in there everyone had to go and look at their sections that they were interested in.
I started looking for cross stitch books but the only one I found was an Ed Hardy cross stitch patterens book and that’s not something that I would stitch so I got discouraged and bug and I wandered around the store. We ended up in the magazine section and I was able to find quite a few cross stitch magazines.
After looking through them I found 2 that had Joan Elliot patterns in them. I jumped at the chance to get them. They’re Cross Stitch Collection, 6/2012 – Issue 210 and Cross Stitch Gold, 8/2012 – Issue 31 (which is shown as issue 93 too so I’m not sure which number it is).
I am looking forward to doing the Sleeping Beauty in Gold and the Butterfly Fairy in Collection. I’m probably going to do the Geishas in Gold for my mother-in-law because she has a whole front room decorated with orientals and it’d go perfectly. I’m not going to lie, I really wanted the patter for Joan Elliot’s Summer Goddess but they didn’t have it in the issue yet and the people and B&N don’t know when they get the next issue in. I’m going to have to keep an eye out for it.
All in all, I’m so happy I picked these up and finally have some cross stitching magazines. I can honestly say that they aren’t going to be my last. 🙂
