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.

Sometimes I *heart* the mailman!

Today was a great mail day!

Look what arrived.....

It's a beautiful hand made needle keep from my friend Pam Kellogg!!

A few weeks ago Pam issued a plea on her blog looking for pink eyelash yarn which was evidently in very short supply in her area.  A trip to my local dollar store yielded up what she was looking for and off a little package went to her.  This is what she sent me in exchange...isn't it lovely?  When I opened the parcel I immediately focused in on the handsome spider!

Thank you Pam - I love my new needle keep!!
p.s. - if you check Pam's blog you'll find an excellent tutorial on how she makes her spider webs.

What a beautiful surprise! Thanks for stopping by my blog, I rushed out this afternoon to buy a ruler so I could tear decal edges and got some Distress ink pads as well. I have been going to buy them for some time but kept putting it off, I have heard so much about them.
