Inspiring Magazines

Homemade With Love issue 4Homemade With Love issue 4

Facebook  Instagram PinterestTwitter

Starting with the beaver project pictured on the front cover and continuing throughout the magazine, this may well be the best issue of Homemade With Love yet! Click on the photo of the magazine to visit their website/blog, which is also well-worth a visit, or on any of the social media icons to follow them there. There are projects galore and inspiration simply oozing from the pages of this issue, and so I would urge you to rush out and buy a copy soon – quick! Before they run out! There are ideas for decorating and some lovely patchwork projects to try. I am so inspired by this magazine that I am lost for more words to tell you how wonderful it is!
