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.

Additional progress (albeit small!!)


Today I didn't manage to accomplish too much on the hussif, but here it is.  The bird to the left of Pooh's tummy was  a hand-painted (on silk I think) brooch.  I removed the pin part and then held it down with a little bit of glue so that I could bead around it to hold it in place more securely.

You might want to have a look at the quilts in the Canadian Quilter's Association National Juried Show - there are lots of spectacular quilts and they are well worth having a look HERE.    Thank you to Judy for telling me about it.

Today the quote is from Erich Fromm...."Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much"
