I've found patterns in two different Cross Stitch & Country Crafts, but I would like to get the first one in the series, so does anyone have

Cross Stitch & Country Crafts  Mar/April '90.

If you have it and can lead me to your bookshelf  I'd gladly request it, or if you just have it to offer - again, I'd be more than happy to give you a credit.

I don't think I probably have that one, but magazines aren't okay, are they? I'm just asking - I think that may not be what you're suggesting.

What pattern series is it?  Maybe it would jog my brain - somewhere in this mess is a tub full of cross-stitch stuff and I do believe those magazines are there.  I'm sorry but I don't know what years they were though.

I just read that they aren't actually supose to be posted.  I had still wanted to offer you a credit, sort of my way of helping out with shipping.

It's a trilogy called "Cottage Gardens"  the type of pattern I've been trying to find.  I'm missing the first one in the trilogy - Thatched Cottage.

It's in "Cross Stitch & Country Crafts"  March/April 1990.

I don't know if it this is allowed, and I hope it's not.

Thank you,

It may take a bit to find the right tub but I will check.  I don't actually remember it but itt's possible and I really should do something with that anyway.  (I'll have to get my husband to find it and he never labels anything.  I can't hunt because of my arms/shoulders which is why I can't do any of my old hobbies either.)

That's frustrating when they had a series like that and you need one.

I finally purged all my old magazines, (I probably had that one also!).  Anyway, try emailing them at the magazine.  They may be able to help you. Good luck
