Patterns: Whistle While You Work

WIP

This week's pattern is from the September 2011 issue of the CrossStitcher magazine. The CrossStitcher magazine is one of my favourite crafty magazines and I'd love to have the time to stitch up all their amazing designs. Pooka writes that this work-in-progress (which is for her Nana for Christmas - lucky Nana!) has taken more than 40 hours, wow!

You can find the CrossStitcher in newsagents in the UK or in online magazine places like Zinio, the latter being a great place for finding back issues or if you live outside the UK.

  2. I've recently just discovered the magazine! I love it and have done a couple pieces from a Christmas issue. This whistle while you work is one I want to do as well!

  4. I love this magazine! I have gotten back issues on zinio, but I also get them at Joanna Fabric (and I use a 40% off coupon whenever I can).

  7. I love how this is looking! I instantly bookmarked this when I received my copy in the mail. Now I just need to finish off a couple of other big projects before I will allow myself to start.
