It's a small world

I won the first issue of Mollie Makes a few weeks ago.

I won it from the lovely Peta of Tins and Needles. And I'm not waxing lyrical when I say Peta is lovely because I actually have the pleasure of knowing Peta "in real life". Our daughters used do to swimming together ages ago (like when Miss Moo was 3 or 4). And we never spoke, mainly because I don't just chat with people I don't know. Then a few years back we ran into each other at Stitches N Craft, so we had a chat. And I told Peta that another crafty woman was amongst us at swimming. Now we all hang out at craft group once a month.

Isn't this apple cozy sweet? Peta crocheted it as a gift along with the mag.

Aren't we lucky that something we love doing had bought us in contact with a wonderful group of women

Oh jealous!! Looks amazing, i just put my name down to order them at my local newsagency & felt like slapping the lady behind the counter as she wasn't all clued into this amazing craft world hype yet. She will be, oh she will be. Love Posie

I am so jealous of you. I have been trying to grab this mag from my local "stockist" but they don't have it. Is it worth a sub?

Lucky you Sara!! After seeing the mag on Peta's blog I contacted all 6 newsagests listed as stockists in Melb only to find out they each received 2 or 3 copies and were long sold out! So Peta sent me directions to the reduced annual sub and I just received my issue 2 and 3 backorders yesterday! It is such a lovely read. Miss getting together with you crafty gals...

Might have to get my hands on one of these magazine:) Or the pattern at least - It might make a great Teacher Christmas Gift.
