Here in the U.S. it is a holiday weekend (Labor Day) and so for most workers, it's a three day weekend. In Minnesota, we are enjoying some beautiful weather with temperatures in the high 70's. The sun is shining - it's a gorgeous day outside!
My DH went fishing, and my DS is off at a gathering for remote control car racers. My DD is home with me, but she has plans to get together with friends later. Needless to say, I am enjoying a quiet day at home (and I love it!) I'm working on laundry and some cleaning this morning but will settle into my stitching chair later this afternoon and enjoy several hours of stitching bliss.
I received something in the mail this week that has me a bit concerned - it was a renewal notice for my subscription to Just Cross Stitch Magazine. This renewal form didn't come from Just Cross Stitch, it came from National Magazine Services. The cost of the renewal immediately caught my attention - it only indicated that I could renew for two years at a rate of $65.95! Those of you who regularly subscribe to Just Cross Stitch know that a two-year subscription only runs about $40.
I've sent a note to Just Cross Stitch customer service asking them about this renewal form and will be sure to let you know what they say when they respond....BUT.... if like me, you do a quick google of "National Magazine Services" it would appear as though there are complaints filed by others who have received fake / unauthorized renewals for other magazines. So be careful about sending your money/renewal to this company.
No pictures to share today. I finished up two gifts last night and will post photos of them once they are received.
Have a great day and happy stitching!
