So much to read, so little time...

Kinfolk issue 7

I'm a bit of a magazine fiend. Upstairs, I have stacks of back issues of favourites old (Martha Stewart Living, Bust, World of Interiors) and new (Lionheart, The Simple Things). And recently, a few even newer favourites have crept in as well.

I've just discovered Kinfolk and Cereal - two of the most beautiful, independent foodie mags, photographed so stylishly and printed on lovely, uncoated paper. Both have new issues coming out around about now, and I can't wait to read them. Swoon!

Another new favourite is Simply Crochet. I don't have a great track record when it comes to crochet... Despite taking a couple of courses it's not a craft that comes naturally, but I'm hoping this splendid new magazine will hold my hand and get me to a point where I can make something like this - a beautiful blanket I had my eye on for ages but could never quite afford. 

And finally, Gathered by Mollie Makes. After working crazy hours for the past few months (I have a complicated day job, a few freelance clients, my writing commitments, plus blogging. Oh, and childcare!), I decided to treat myself to an iPad. And I'm so glad I did - a whole world of Newsstand has opened up to me, with all my favourites available at the swipe of a screen. Gathered is a new weekly publication from the people behind Mollie Makes, featuring craft projects, interviews with makers, book reviews, and beautiful products. If you take a look at my sidebar over on the right there, you'll see the Gathered logo. That's because I interviewed Emma Hardicker for the current issue (issue 21)! Gathered is available for subscription, but there's a deal on at the mo where you can download five free issues. Go on, I think you'll love it.

What are your favourite reads? I'd love to know.

Footnote: just spotted this video - the making of Gathered. Love it!
