This probably is something I should not have done with my “no buy” commitment but . . I did it and I feel like I just hit the jackpot so I’m not counting it as a fail.
Several times in the last few days . . don’t ask me why all of a sudden, but I’ve seen people on Facebook show things they stitched from GOS magazine. I had no idea what it was but then someone showed a picture of something they had stitched from an issue from 2010 and that put me on the hunt. I had to figure out this mystery.
I did figure it out. It’s The Gift of Stitching, an Australian magazine that was only published from 2006 to 2012. They have a “package deal” where you can get all 72 of their back issues, digital copies only. The regular pice is right at $40 USD but there’s a 30% off sale now so it comes out to $27.97 USD for 72 issues!! I was fixing to pay the $40 and was all excited about that and then I saw that it was 30% off so I was even more excited. With the cost of charts, I won’t have to stitch but 3 or 4 things in this package to make it worth the cost but I’m 100% sure there are way more than 3 or 4 things I want to stitch.
I’ve only looked at a couple of the issues but this is definitely something I’m very happy to have and wanted to share it just in case anyone else is wanting it.
It comes as a zipped file and I have no idea how to unzip it but I put it all in Dropbox and it apparently unzips each magazine separately for me.
Just wanted to share . . in case there’s anyone else who wants to follow me down that rabbit hole.
