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.

White....again!!

Over the weekend I began another section for my second white cloth and here it is...



This area began with a vintage hankie pocket/holder.  I added some 'extras' to it, for additional interest, plus embroidered the names and wedding date for the intended recipients.  



Here you can see the pocket flap lifted up.


In my poking about on the internet I discovered a couple of interesting things I thought you might enjoy seeing....

1.  This artist works in a folk art style and does some beautiful scenic pieces.  Go HERE to see some of her work.

2.  This blog is doing a series on creating a really cute embroidered cushion.  Well worth having a peek at and perhaps adding to your want-to-do list!  Go to THIS link for part one and go HERE for part two. 



Today the quote is from John Maynard Keynes...  "The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from the old ones"

LOVE the whitework and the pocket with it's hidden heart! The link to the pincushion has had me down the rabbit hole for about an hour! What lovely work she does.
