Home Remedy for the Common Cold

Better Than Chicken Soup

I found the cure for the common cold.  OK, perhaps not the cure, but certainly as medicinal as chicken soup, and far longer lasting.  It’s the new magazine Primitive Quilts and Projects.  I read it three times in three days.  The surprise in this was the rug hooking project which I didn’t notice at first. Indeed, when I bought it I did so for the cover, and then my cold hit…hard.  But as my wits and energy returned, not to mention my mental and visual acuity, I picked it up and found the articles and projects so intriguing and delightful, I almost forgot about my cold.  Almost.

It is filled with wool projects for applique, altered clothing, and a bonus pin cube that I intend to make with some recycled cardstock.  The fonts are large and readable, and there is a conspicuous absence of advertising, which surely will change given the potential of this wonderful periodical.  There is a pull out of patterns; some full-sized!  How often do you see that?

I just subscribed, and look forward to getting the back issues I’ve ordered as well as future ones.  I found my copy at JoAnns but also saw it at Barnes & Noble.   It’s a little bit of West Virginia heaven!  Check it out.   www.primitivequiltsandprojects.com

    Doesn’t the cover of anything you read make all the difference? I am often pulled in by intriguing cover pages in painting magazines. Such good pattern pull-outs also sounds great. Hope you are feeling better – goodness knows how long those silly colds can hang on. I still have mine. Yuck! Any more needle punch projects on the go lately? Take care!

    Just found this one myself just this week. It is a lovely magazine. Hope all is well with you and that “Katrina” has passed. Sending warm thoughts your way.

  3. Oh that reminds me, I wrote a “War plan against the sniffles” some time ago, here’s the link and hope it helps 🙂

    The magazine seems interesting. Too bad we don’t have such great one over at this end.
