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.

Mumblings

I had a grand plan today of taking a photo of the fodder I have pulled from my stash for my next project.  Alas, the day has come and gone and now the light is gone and pictures will not be forthcoming.  This next project I will be able to share as I go along (don't all fall all over yourselves in relief that the looking back series has drawn to its excruciating demise!!).

So....instead, here's a couple of announcements....

1.  Wen, of Apple & Apricot, has announced that she is starting a fun new linkie party called 'Simply Neutral Tuesday' and her first party date is next Tuesday (Sept. 8th).  If you love neutral shades and want to see what the party is all about, pay her a visit HERE

2.  I know that there's something to be said for not coveting things, but I have to admit that THIS makes my heart go pitter pat.  It's something than any knitter would love to have!  So handy (pun intended!) and so beautiful, especially the blue one!!

3.  Today is official release day of the 2016 Crazy Quilt calendar by Pam Kellogg of Kitty and Me Designs.  It promises to be another amazing showcase of embroidery talent (you can go HERE to see the lineup of artists - pretty cool!!).    You can go HERE to order your very own copy (and remember - Christmas is coming and these would make wonderful gifts for all the stitchers in your life). 


Today your quote is from Bob Talbert...."Teaching kids to count is fine, but teaching them what counts is best"

You know my curiosity got the better of me and I just had to see what the blue one was...I LOVE IT and think I need one even though I do not knit (very well). How fun this would be and believe it or not at the Chamber of Commerce we still use an old fashioned counter for how many guests we have each day. Blue is my very favorite color too! Thank you Mary Ann (MA) for sharing this! Creative Bliss...
