So while reading blogs I often find people working on amazing charts from publications that I can not get my hands on. The most recent of these is the Just Cross Stitch Halloween Ornaments edition which has an amazing Edgar Allen Poe, The Raven chart which I fell in love with when I saw it on Back on the Wall and the Christmas Ornament edition which was on By the Babbling Brooke
However I knew I would never be able to get my little mitts on these issue but I said I would give it a shot and did a web search. The Just Cross Stitch website came up, so click on it I did. I was over joyed by what I saw. A digital subscription to the magazine for a year starting with the Christmas ornament issue and with access to 2 years of archive issues for an extremely reasonable price. Now I know that this means I will have to print the charts I want to work on but as I make working copies anyway that's not a big deal. So I paid my money and had access straight away to download the current issue and the archived issues!
Now you might be saying to yourself, I thought she said she wanted the Halloween Ornament edition too, and so I did. However as this is a special edition it wasn't included in the subscription, but the price of the subscription was so reasonable I didn't mind paying some extra for the Halloween ornament issue. So after a quick scroll of the website I saw the Halloween Ornament edition, I was transferred to another site, which seemed to be affiliated with the Just Cross Stitch site and I purchased my digital download copy of Halloween Ornaments. I was able to download and save the .pdf straight away and spend some very happy minutes looking at all the pretty patterns.
The only problem is that there are so many I want to do, I don't know when I will get the time :D So anyone who has problems getting access to the Just Cross Stitch magazine, the digital download option is amazing, the price is fabulous and best of all it is available to anyone all over the World. You will be seeing some of the wonderful patterns in progress here VERY soon.
