There's a lady in Blue on my magazine. I get Prima on subscription. I like the mix of things it has in there some craft ideas, some cooking, some home, some fashion hardly any celebrity gossip thank heavens.

I brought a craft magazine recently but was stunned that it cost £3.99. To me thats a paperback book price.

Well if the magazine says free inside or on the cover, you should get whatever it is, eother that or your newsagent is selling them off somewhere else

On the front of one of my Dolls House Mags, 2 real size reels of sewing thread. Excellant value.

Mollie Makes has a rather nice set of felt flower rings to make up, which I thought Cg might like to have a go at when on holiday.

Simply Knitting has 3 rather lurid crochet hooks AND a special gift because I got it from Sainsury's, 2 rather nice shawl pins

Just bought my last Lets Make Cards. Excellant freebies again. Problem is I am still making from last months mag. Usually manage to make 20 or so cards at least from the pack, so that makes it good value. There is also usually plenty of leftovers.
