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.

I'm late, I'm late!

I know I'm late with my post today, but I have a good reason.  I finished the 'Grande Secret Project' AND one other commitment I had has been met too.  Yay!!  Maybe, just maybe, there might be some new content on this poor ol' blog at some point in the not-too-distant future.  Hope you're sitting down!

In the meantime, Issue 6 of the free online magazine 'Through Our Hands' is up and available.  There are some very excellent articles and eye candy to be seen in this issue.  Go HERE to read it.  You can also access the earlier editions through this link.

AND, Connie Eyberg has been doing something that is absolutely amazing and you just have to go and see HERE.  I have thrown myself on her mercy in hopes that she will make one for me for my fall CQ I have planned.  Fingers crossed!

Here's a few more photos in the looking back series...

A knitted lace scarf - made in 2013


In 2013 I began a wonderful wrapping cloth class with Karen Ruane
and this is what I ended up creating....

Aren't you always amazed when you read about the art that is created and you are only able to see in a magazine or on the internet because you are unable to travel to it or to even KNOW about it! We are really lucky to have technology and can only wonder what will come next.

Can't wait to see the grande project!! I still have macrame supplies and patterns, but really no desire to revisit that craft. But then you never know!

Thanks for sharing the mag link. It's a great read.
xx, Carol
