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.

No salsa 'round here!

No rumba, no salsa, not even any sedate waltzing.  Too hot for anything beyond languidly reclining, iced tea to hand, and the consumption of the occasional bon bon to keep the strength up.  


And if you believe that I even know how to dance?  Hah! Nope, never learned.  Even the bon bons are few and far between.



So....(and you know what I'm going to say already, don't you!!)...how about some more mumblings?



- I was putzing about on my blog last night and going through some old posts and reminded myself that I really have wanted to make one of THESE - obviously ever since 2010 when I initially posted about it!!  Perhaps you might like to make one too.



- Many of you know that I used to make a lot of creations using recycled denim and I still have a fascination for it.  Imagine how excited I was when I found THIS site.  The denim creations there are beyond incredible!!!  Be sure to spend some time exploring his site to see the treasures he has created.  



- Fall is coming, so perhaps you'd like to make one (or more) of these fun mug rugs.



- THIS wee crochet pattern is one that fits all the criteria for 'awwwww'



- if you have some fat quarters in your stash, perhaps you might find something HERE that might be of interest.



- and, because it's hot here and I want to think cooler thoughts (despite not being a fan of winter!), perhaps you might find some ideas for Christmas creations HERE.  



- HERE's a cute robot quilt tutorial for young people (or the young-at-heart!)



Today your quote is from Carl Bard...."Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending"

When I read "no salsa" I of course immediately thought that you never eat salsa. Then I was thinking how much I love a Salsa that I get at Walmart....chipolte peach pineapple salsa which I seem to be putting on just about everything that used to call for catsup.

I think it would be funny to watch me do my version of salsa DANCING and see how silly I look while I'm thinking how great I can dance, lol.

Lots of great mumblings here today. Hope you get a break in the weather...there is none in sight for me.
xx, Carol

Those denim works of art are just amazing!
Sadly I haven't done much sewing for years...and I used to love it!
I really need to get organized so I get some time to do something pretty.
Thanks for the reminder!

I feel your pain about the heat. I can't abide it either. I need to live somewhere the sun always shines yet it remains cool.....

Still hot here in Nova Scotia. Intermittent internet too! As a result, I'm not on the web much these days. Thanks for the links.
