good reads : 91Magazine & a little nordic pincushion

91Magazine Craft Special, January 2014 / includes a Nordic inspired crochet pincushion pattern by Emma Lamb

As you know 91Magazine is one of my favourite magazines (digital or otherwise!) which is one of the reasons why I am so excited about this gorgeous 'craft special' that Caroline has pulled together so beautifully. It is packed full of her gorgeous sense of colour and style that I especially adore and it is choc full of fabulous crafty diy projects to help you beat the January blues...

"It's that dreary month of January, I'm sure it's most people's least favourite month of the year. Everyone's broke after Christmas and it's cold and dark outside. Well! We've decided to try and remedy this problem with our brand new issue of 91 Magazine! It is our first ever Craft Special, as we thought it's the perfect time to stay indoors and get making and also with the new year, it's time to try out some new things!"

Included are a whole host of gorgeous projects from dottie angel's cute knitted bunting (pictured on the cover) to an origami vase by Hege Morris and a chair makeover by Jess Payne. Amongst the crafty how-to's there are plenty of lovely articles to inspire you too. A peek into the lovely home of Leigh Metcalf, a few highlights from London's Renegade craft Fair and a wee look at a couple of vintage fairs from around the UK. Oh and possibly best of all |(I'm being totally biased here!) that little Nordic pincushion I mentioned in the title of this post! Yes, my contribution to this very special crafty issue of 91Magazine is a pattern for this sweet pincushion! I do hope you love crocheting it as much as I loved creating it for you and 91Magazine?
