default Whats On The Cover Of Your Magazine?

Post by Sparhawk on 9th May 2010, 4:00 am

O.k. so this is rather a tentative "Whats On" but I'm cheeky, so let us all know "Whats On" the front cover of your magazine this month...

Two gardening ones to start off with:

June Editions

Grow It!: 1 x packet Beetroot Boltardy
Grow Your Own: 1 x packet Red Basil

Now I know there are more out there, how about some crafty ones too...

Kitchen Garden didn't have any freebies this month; hoping to have time to look at my copy of Terrorizer later this weekend

I have always wondered that there are enough radiogramophobes to warrant a specialist magazine.

I suppose there has to be a vehicle for the people who like to complain about some minute detail which has been overlooked, and thus has spoilt their entire evening's viewing. My favourite complaint from the Radio Times letters page was one years ago where the writer complained that during a costume drama, s/he had clearly heard the call of a collared dove during one particular scene, which had been completely out of place because this bird had not become naturalised in the UK at the time the drama was set. This has become a byword in our family for pedantic complaints, i.e. 'That's a bit collared dove, isn't it?'

On the front of one of my Dolls House magazines, a kit to make a pair of shoes with a box as well.

A newsagent nearby was closing down, so I scored some great mags at 80% off!

"Green" - Converted past - a warehouse conversion in Hobart and Family Farm - Organics at the gate.
"Handmade" Christmas in July - a winter celebration (necessary when Christmas is normally mid summer!)

There's a lady in Blue on my magazine. I get Prima on subscription. I like the mix of things it has in there some craft ideas, some cooking, some home, some fashion hardly any celebrity gossip thank heavens.

I brought a craft magazine recently but was stunned that it cost £3.99. To me thats a paperback book price.
