itch'n to get stitch'n . . .

Greetings all,
I love hand stitching, embroidery & tapestry, give me any crafts you can do 'unplugged' in the car, on the lounge, watching children's sport . . . the latest issue of Mollie Makes magazine is filled with stitchy goodness, it does not disappoint.
 Even better, stitching in a hoop!!
 Mollie does a cute embroidery hommage to tea & coffee (shame i don't drink either).
 I picked up these fabulous stitchy books in the past few weeks.
 The cute transfer style of Sublime Stitching is a winner, especially with my children who have a love of handycrafts too (remember we don't have any hand held electronic gadgets in this house or in the car for long trips, i go all Amish on them in the car).  I think the Cath Kidston house cushion below is so sweet!!
 I am so doing this embroidery over the Christmas break, my son has a few products with this Cath Kidston cowboy print on it, now he'll have a cushion to match, stitched with love.
 This image of the cherry cups in the adorable cupboard ever, is a little eye candy nod to darling Heidi in Alaska at The PolkaDot Petticoat.  The shelves in her home are lined with extreme divine vintage gorgeousness.
It's almost parenting Quit'n Time tonight, then i'll start my Stitch'n Time, love Posie

Can't wait to see some of your work when it's done....long time since I have done any hand stitching...need to learn to sit still long enough to re visit that one.

Oh I'm sooo tempted to subsribe to this one!! Looks so lovely!! I bought that Aneely Hoey embroidery pattern on etsy and can't wait to stitch it up for poppet! Thinking hand stitching might be the perfect activity whilst breastfeeding the new bub....mmm, do you think I can juggle them both? Hope all is lovely in your world :) x

Just wondering where you got the lovely magazine? Do you have to subscribe or pick it up somewhere?
Thanks, Jen
