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.

Another postcard and a couple of little mumblings

Just to prove that there really has been a little stitching accomplished at Chez Magpie....

oops - there's a thread on the poor girls cheek!

I thought you might like to see the sweet little teddy bear patterns to be found HERE  and HERE.  Even better is that they're free!

Cyra has posted the next part of her stunning crocheted Mandala Madness project and you can drool over that HERE.  

I love these little birdies HERE - but wouldn't dare fill them with lavender or I couldn't breathe.  OR how about her sweet little kitty pattern?

Today the quote is from Claude Shannon....." We know the past, but cannot control it.  We control the future, but cannot know it"

Cutie birds - look like they have lone ranger masks on. Are you allergic to lavender.
