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.

Here's proof....

....that I actually do something besides crazy quilt!

   I'm not a good knitter by any means but I don't think our expected grandbaby will care that it's not perfect.





Today's quote is from one of my favourite authors, Ralph Waldo Emerson...

"To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.  This is to have succeeded."
