The Gift of Stitching Magazine

I've been debating subscribing for this online magazine and this month there is a special offer of 3 issues for US$3 which has made my mind up!  The free sample looked good and for that price there is nothing to lose really.  I was halfway through filling in the form when I saw the "Tell a Friend" space.  Now, I know I first saw it on someone's blog but who's I do not remember!  So the first person to tell me they have the link on their blog (and I will check :-)) will get their name put in that space and get a free month added to their subscription.

Stitching wise it's been Nimue all week, I love this design it's so cute and really quick!  Daytime my project is the saggy old cloth cat Bagpuss for the large boy's class teacher.  His Maths teacher is getting numbers on her sampler.  I gave the large boy a piece of paper and asked to draw the numbers 0 - 9 and the symbols + - X / in a random fashion then I charted them.  He will choose the colours too.  I see a bright future ahead as a Mother-and-son designing duo!

Mouse - I did see your answers! Thank you so much. The chart is on my wish-list and I may take inspiration from your design. I promise not to copy completely and I will tell everyone your's is amazing!
The large boy loves the word thingies as well, he thinks people make them up themselves and they are real words!

Lesley, I've seen the link on your blog so if you let me know your full name I'll put it on the form. You can email me at joanneperry17@aol.com So pleased you and Jilly both enjoy the mag.
