Last weekend it was a Bank Holiday here in the UK and on the Saturday and Sunday of the Bank Holiday I attended a workshop where I learnt how to make a dress.
I hope you’ve all had a lovely week. I’m looking forward to the Olympic closing ceremony this evening and then the next stage of this sporty summer of wonderfulness, aka the Paralympics. Please don’t forget to watch these amazing games too, they start on 29th August!
Anyway, onto my Sunday lovin’!

Aside from papercrafts and baking, I also love to sew. Up until now all I could really do though was cross stitch and although I enjoy it and am good at it, learning something new is always good! So when I saw the LivingSocial deal for a starter class at SUPER+SUPER in Brighton for £8 instead of the usual £20, I couldn’t say no!
It’s not an uncommon fact that I love to read. I have a Kindle, but also like books. I never really read magazines much though, only really for the free gifts they’d have every so often.
Just recently, however, I’ve gotten into 2 magazines that are new to me. They aren’t brand new magazines or anything, but I think they are fab and have me yearning to make almost everything in them!
They are both from the same publisher and you can get some really good discounts on subscriptions for them (which I’ve taken advantage of) complete with an additional free gift! I’ll add sub links underneath each of the magazine descriptions.
The first is Mollie Makes, which is a pretty cool and trendy magazine, covering many different types of craft. There are some features with blog links, lifestyle photos, tutorials and patterns, and they give away some fab free gifts. You can subscribe here and you can get a free gift of a jelly roll of Amy Butler fabric.
The second is Cross Stitcher, which from the title you can tell that it is a more specialist magazine, and it features some really cool and younger style of magazine approach. Similar to Mollie Makes, if you will. It contains many a pattern to create some less old-lady style cross stitches, and you can subscribe here-free gift is a selection of cross stitching threads.
