Last week I started to write about my love of magazines.
The magazine ‘Mollie Makes’ http://www.molliemakes.com/ comes with a free little craft project to complete every month and I don’t always get round to making them. But this week I made sure that I did one and I crocheted this lovely ‘Summer Cherry Brooch’ from issue 43 of Mollie Makes. It will go perfectly on a denim jacket!
A magazine I haven’t yet mentioned is ‘Daphne’s Diary’ http://www.daphnesdiary.com/en/
This is originally from The Netherlands but is now translated into English (as well as German and French). It has an unusual format in that it is written like a diary with entries, snippets of information and inspirations. There are also hardly any advertisements. It really is a fabulous magazine…
As the holiday season continues, I hope that I will find a few golden moments to either read a magazine or crochet for a while…
Till next week, happy crocheting…
Those cherries are really cute 🙂 I wish I had access to [English] magazines where I currently live. Those dedicated to crafts are truly worth keeping, inspiration for many years to come. How nice to end one with something to make 🙂
Yes, they are worth keeping although the pile of magazines keeps growing! 😃
How cute! That looks like it would make a great appliqué, too. I may have to grab a copy of the magazine. 🙂
Thanks for commenting😊 the cherry pattern was free with an older copy of the magazine (been on my to do list for too long!)
I am a magazine addict too and I am trying to rein it in. I love the same magazines plus others like Quilt Now. I used to get Quilty when I lived in Australia which is a great magazine for beginners. Love New Scientist too!
Another magazine addict! 😊 So much choice and I know what you mean about reining it in! Thanks for commenting 😊
