All my Christmases at once?

I have been suffering a severe drought of quilt magazines lately. I get most of them through my local magazine shop and the distributor can be pretty erratic with deliveries. I think they store them up in the warehouse for weeks before releasing them to the bookshops. I knew it was going to be an expensive day when I walked into Magzone and Pip asked if I had brought the bank with me! Six quilting magazines - plus the Xbox mag for He of Honey Bunch fame - ouch!

I am going to a 2 day course at the Cloth Shop in the weekend so I will have to read them all tonight. The worst thing is that I know it will be ages before anymore arrive (sob, sob.)

I can't pace myself when my subscription arrives either! - Then it's a month before the next one arrives.

I have cut down to one subscription, & sometimes a special deal, where i get 3 for 1. But oh, how I enjoy the new ones!

We obviously use the same book shop and I note there is obviously one still waiting for me - yippee

when too many arrive at once I kinda go into overload. My brain just can't handle it. Yesterday there were 3 waiting for me at the Post Office... NZ Quilter, Get Creative and QNM. So far I've read ONE article in Get Creative [ and only because it's got some of my quilts in ] :]
