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.

Great finds, blog anniversaries and such

There are several interesting things I have to share today!
1.  My friend Yvonne is celebrating her 1st year blog anniversary with a fun giveaway (lots of treasures, including some of her hand made soap which I can say for certain is lovely).  Visit her blog here to get all the details.  (Speaking of blog anniversaries, I will be celebrating one this month too - I will reach 1000 posts and will be having a giveaway too.  Stay tuned for the details on that.)

2.  Vicki of Field Trips in Fiber and Three Creative Studios has posted the links and information on how you can win some more pretty cool stuff.  There's a chance to win on a Block of the Month contest; there's also a Technique of the Month contest (Three Creative Studios posts a free tutorial each month and all you have to do to enter for the contest is to try it out and post your results...that's a win/win in my mind!).  Vicki herself is celebrating her soon-to-be retirement from the corporate world and is having a weekly giveaway of handdyed fabric.  Go here for the info!

3.  Deepa has found a very valuable resource for those of us interested in fabric arts and you can read all about it on her blog entry here.  Costumes, textiles and embroidery galore.

4.  For some great eye candy, have a look here at Diane Savona's art site.  Yum!!

Hope you find something here you will enjoy.
