MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Look what I found & a mini-mumble


This bag was at my local fabric store and I think it will be just perfect to hold my circular knitting needles (which are a beast to store). I don't know if you can see in the picture, but the 'pages' are all velcroed in the middle so they are removable, which means I can make MORE pages that will be the perfect size. I didn't need this bag, but it came down to that nasty word, want. Bah.
Now on to the mini-mumble....
1. We will not speak of the new clothes I got today. No, we will not speak of them, because I am carrying a humongous amount of guilt at the moment. The fact that I have never (not in my whole 50 plus years) had two count 'em new outfits unless they came from the thrift store. My DH keeps telling me to just get over it, but it's so hard to justify spending money on myself.
2. We also will not discuss that I have placed yet another book on my wish list. Quilting Arts sent me a notice today about a new book called 'Creating With Fabric' by Jill Haglund. I must remember 'thou shalt not covet' and put it from my mind.
3. Meant to mention this yesterday...I was looking for some quotes about coffee and tea and found some great ones on this site: http://www.quotegarden.com/ They have pretty much every subject covered, so if you're looking for something for your art, check them out!

You know MA I am the same when it comes to spending money on myself--but not when it is spent on my craft.
