Looks like we'll have to abandon this  
I'll be honest.... I try to do too much.. and I really can't do it all...

I run several websites, try to do pad donations, run a business (on top of being a mum and trying to do the housewifey thing)... and I just don't have any free time to be able to take this all on myself - especially when we're not getting in any submissions... I don't have time to chase people up and pester them for articles and content, and I don't have time (nor do I want to) write the entire magazine content up myself :D

And the idea for this was for it to be not something *I* did, but something that we all collectively contribute to, and I was just the one cut & pasting it into a single format so others can read it...

But we've not got anything new submitted for ages now... and I think I'll have to concede defeat here and realise it's just not going to work.

So I'm guessing we'll have to call it quits.... Unless someone else (or several someone elses) wants to step up and take over... get stuff written up, prompt people to submit content....

We have another private LJ community for the admin team (if we have one) to use to discuss things privately so we're still keeping each issue a surprise for readers, so it can be a collaboration of several people helping...

I don't mind physically creating it (though I'm also happy to hand that over to someone else if they have the design skills I lack :D) but we need the stuff to go in it...

totally understandable. I have absolutely no time or skills in that regard. Thank you for what you were able to do.

To be honest, it was wonderful while it lasted. But I noticed it was getting a bit late waiting for submissions. I would have loved to help but I'm always working on something for my classes. I don't sew as often as I'd like too :/

Thanks for all of your effort and time. The issues already available are wonderful :)
Thank you!
