In truth, I hardly ever get time to read them. I was given a copy of Company magazine before it was released when I attended the blogger awards at the end of May but I still haven’t got round to reading it yet. My friends and family pass on the magazines they have finished with, so I have an optimistic little pile of things to look at, but I can’t seem to sit still for long enough to have a proper read.
So this month I have decided to make a little more time for myself and have invested in issue twenty-nine of Mollie Makes. As I flicked through it in the shop, I was actually about to put it back on the magazine rack (for the reasons above, no offence to the magazine intended at all) when a page caught my eye. It was this tutorial for an American quilt and I have been collecting scraps of fabric to make this exact type of quilt all year, so that sold it to me and I handed over my cash there and then.
I’m also pleased with the little giveaway project on the front of the magazine – something else that I will need to sit still and concentrate on this month! I’m suitably impressed that a needle and thread is even included in this little fishy keyring kit, so there really is no excuse for not doing it. I will let you know how I get on… and now I’ve promised that, I’ll actually have to do it!
So, tell me, what do like to read when you get a spare moment to yourself? Do you subscribe to any magazines? Any recommendations for me to try next month? Leave me a comment below or tweet me @CassiefairyTutu 😀

Very wise words! And I’ve got the summer holidays stretching out ahread of me, so hopefully I’ll get some projects started then! 🙂
I thought I was the only one who did that! (Pinning things I want to make and then never looking at my boards.). As long as I keep making things (and you too) that’s all that matters. There’s no race.
Oooh I will check out Cloth, Paper, Scissors – it sounds right up my street! I agree, there’s so much excellent content online, and I’m forever pinning things on Pinterest, but never quite get round to looking at them again – must do better! I will definitely share my quilt on the blog once it’s done but (seeing as I can’t even manage to flick through a magazine!) it may take some time! I did actually sit down and sew the Mollie Makes fish project this evening, so that’s a step in the right direction! 😀
Beautiful quilt! I can see why it caught your eye (and I can’t wait to see yours). I used to subscribe to Cloth, Paper, Scissors. So many amazing projects and tutorials. I feel bad getting paper versions of things, though, when there’s so much stuff on the Internet. I do splurge every so often but make sure I use a lion’s share of it to upcycle into collages (and then recycle the rest).
