A New Magazine

I got the May/June 2010 copy of Victoria in today's mail ~ it is an absolutely beautiful issue.
It's full of lavender, hydrangeas, and lilacs.
There are wonderful articles about Mackinac Island in Michigan and Portland, Maine too.

One of my favorite features is called Artist-In-Resident. Such pretty creations and fairly simple ones too. A crocheted alphabet letter ~ the letter M (for Marie); a mason jar sewing kit and a cross stitch pincushion (there's that M again!)



Did you notice what's down at the bottom of the last photo? It's a tiny peek at a doily bunting. How cute is that!
This is definitely my favorite issue of Victoria in quite a while!
It's on newstands now.

I've never seen that magazine. I'll have to keep a look out for it. I like that crocheted letter. Magazines like that are so great to get ideas.

Hi Marie
I am loving my Vicotria magazine too. I want a letter K done like that, so cute. I am thinking about trying to make a banner with dolies. Wishing you a good week.
Hugs,
Kathy
