I GOT THIS !!!!!


I got this in yesterday's mail !!! I didn't post then because I was looking at it all day !!! Three of my favorite ornaments are on the cover. The Sock Monkey:





The Blackbird Design Ornament:






Of Course the ornament by Paulette - Plum Street Sampler:



I used to work for Just Cross Stitch Magazine, for about 12 years. I began as a stitcher of the models in the magazine. I did that for about 10 years. It was so fun at times, to see the things I stitched on the front cover. I also stitched a lot of the Disney Kits & Duplicate Sweater leaflets that were released back in the 90's. I also did stitching for the Sampler & Antique Quarterly Magazine and McCall's Needlework Magazine. Then, I started Proofing the graphs. I really liked that. Why? Because I got to see all those great ornaments and stitched pieces before the public. Now.... I am the public. LOL I have to wait like everyone else... I miss working for them. It was so much fun. But, I like stitching for me... No deadlines... LOL

Well.....Tomorrow is our Zoe's 1st Birthday !!! Her party will be Saturday! Can't wait for more cake!!! I will take it easy this time. Easier said then done... I know. But, I will try.....

Till Later....

Sounds like that was a fun job - however I can see where it might take the fun out of it if you had deadlines!

I picked up my copy yesterday and love it!

Have fun at the party - but watch out for that cake!
