Country Sampler is one of my "must have" magazines. I love all the decorating ideas and tips, and confirms my belief that country decorating is still my absolute favourite. I think the anticipation of reading it cover to cover is just as much fun for me as the actual reading of it. I love to have some leisurely time along with a coffee to enjoy it. I've had the latest edition for a few weeks now, but because I hadn't found the time I like to enjoy it, it's been waiting patiently unopened for me. I was so excited last night when I took it to bed with me to find crocheted rag rugs featured for having "that true country look and vintage appeal". I know I've been "on about" my rag rugs a bit lately, but just had to share what I had found. Since we lost Rick Rutherford's magazine some time ago, I don't know of another Australian equivalent to this American magazine. Hopefully one day we'll have as much Australian patriotism found in an Australian magazine as we find American patriotism in Country Sampler.
