Create and Decorate

I spotted this magazine on a recent trip to JoAnn Fabric & Crafts.  I'd never seen it before, but after thumbing through it, I decided to purchase it.  This is the January/February 2012 issue.  Inside are a variety of projects from painting to punchneedle to stitching (cross stitch, sewing, quilting) and some mixed media.  I took a few pictures, but I'll apologize for them in advance.  I took them at night while trying to hold the magazine steady, so the pictures aren't very good.  Hopefully you can get the idea!

Heart Pillow

Make-do-Patchwork Pincushions
(I found a glass piece on a recent trip to the Salvation Army thrift store to use for one of these.)

Winged Hearts
(I'll make these without the wings, 'cause they're just not my thing.)

Cross Stitch Heart

You can learn more about the magazine at their website.  While there, you can see a few more pictures from the current issue, browse their online projects, and sign up for their newsletter.  

I'd like to make the Winged Hearts before Valentine's Day.  We will have to see if that comes to be.

It's so hard to find craft magazines, or cross stitch magazines, up where I am. It's nice to hear/see other blogs discussing them. :)

How's your shoulder feeling?

This looks full of great patterns. The pillow looks like a must make. :-) And make do pincushions are wonderful. I have a vice to make one with but have never gotten around to it.
