Création Point de Croix Hors-Serie Gourmandises

When I first laid eyes on the most recent issue of the Création Point de Croix Hors Magazine, I knew I had to get it! This June/July 2012 issue focuses purely on all things sweet - like desserts, pastries, cupcakes. If you are like me who loves desserts, and also into cross stitch, you should not miss this issue! I immediately grabbed a copy even though I must say I'm not quite sure when I WILL actually start stitching a project from the magazine yet (looking at my unfinished cross stitch project).

I still want to finish stitching the fruit tart that I've stopped halfway and want to take a photo of that when I am done!

I was very excited when I received it and spent a great deal of time looking through the pictures. Even though the entire magazine is in French and I do not know French, but cross stitch shouldn't be too difficult to follow when the thread colour coding is clearly stated.

I'm not sure why our local bookstores don't carry this magazine, but they should. I have browsed through many cross stitch magazines and collected many over the years, and I think this magazine produces one of the most classy and sophisticated designs.

Just love this really sweet those macarons and profiteroles!

There are also some sweet ideas for miniatures too :)

Have a great weekend!
