I adore Cross Stitcher Magazine ....that is the one that is always encased in a plastic slip so you canNOT look through it before you purchase it (Yuck!), it is published in GB and it is really pricey. Many times I simply do not have the price !
The Making Spot however is an online arm of Cross Stitcher that is emailed to you and gives you the opportunity to purchase individual projects found in Cross Stitcher. Sometimes it even gives you FREE advice. That is what I have reposted above. I hope there is a tip there that will help you...I found TWO that will help me. Who knew to use 3 strands on colored backgrounds? Not me.
Oh and one more thing before I go:
This is the MOST INCREDIBLE story you will ever read.
It is available for pre-order now at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
It is also available for Kindle and The Nook or any E Reader.
It will be available on April 3.
I have been reading the NieNieDialogues.com now for 5 years. I never miss a day.
Stephanie Aurora Nielson is an inspiration for me.
