Unaware of what is going to happen, I sent my subscription cheque to IST Publisher at the beginning of September, to start my new subscription from issue 70.
And over a week ago I found out that Magic Patch is no longer being published in English. The publisher's website was down.
Oh, what has happened to my money?
Few days later a letter arrived, telling me that Traplet Publications are going to fulfill the remaining subscriptions, and I could choose from "Patchwork & Quilting" or "Fabrications Quilting For You" magazines. I chose "Fabrications", a very good patchwork magazine I subscribed to some time ago. This is very nice from Traplet, but of course good for them also - they are getting new subscribers for their magazines, which hopefully will stay with them after the initial subscription expires.
I believe that the original French version of Magic Patch is being published as before.
Actually, this is not the first time this has happened to English Magic Patch, and it did return some time later. May be it will happen again.......

Following our fantastic summer, the nature has been most productive this autumn; from all sorts of berries to other "things that lurk" in the woods.
Some of these pictures would probably make good subjects for embroidery; do feel free to use them if you want to.

A large bathroom with walk in shower (note for our overseas visitors - definitively no carpet in the bathroom :-).
If you ever plan to visit this part of Devon, do have a look at their website, I do recommend it.
