I had a good day yesterday. It involved Barnes & Noble and a little thing I like to call a dream come true.
(I warned you that this would be dramatic.)
I decided to stop at Barnes and Noble last night on my way home. I am lucky (unlucky?) enough to live reeeally close to a B&N. I stopped to look at nook covers, but what I found was so much better.
Back story: A few weeks ago I saw a magazine called "The Cross Stitcher" on someone else's blog. What did I love about this magazine? See the Will & Kate piece on the cover? That was one thing. Other than that, it just looks like a fresh take on cross stitch. It's not like cats and fairies and hearts and stuff. You know what I mean?
I don't remember what blog I saw it on - but I do remember doing a lengthy internet search on this magazine and where to buy it. I found out that it is a magazine from the UK, and basically I would have to pay a ton of money for the subscription to be sent here.
I was bummed, but forgot about it. Until that fateful trip to B&N yesterday. I was doing my regular browsing of the craft and hobby magazines when I spotted a cute little banner on the cover of a magazine.
Could it be? My cross stitching dream come true? Cue hallelujah chorus. It was in the back row and I practically dove for it, peeking over my shoulder and throwing elbows just to make sure no one else was making a move on my little treasure. Of course I snatched it up, along with another issue that was there.
Oh man, I am loving this magazine! It is fresh and fun and full of cute British lingo.
See what I mean? Blooming marvelous.
