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.

Block 5 begins


Finally got some time to stitch and completed a couple of the seams for block five...


Straight stitches, lazy daisies, cross stitches and either French knots or beads.



Straight stitches, cross stitches & lazy daisies. 





Mumblings...


- There's a wonderful (and free!) quilt magazine available HERE.  There are a number of great articles and patterns that the quilter community will find interesting.

- Dollmakers will like to check out the online classes available HERE.  I drool over these, but so far haven't succumbed.  And if you want to get lost in some fascinating doll-themed pinterest boards check HERE.

Today's quote is from Marjorie Pay Hinckley...."The trick is to enjoy life.  Don't wash away your days, waiting for better ones ahead"

I thought of you yesterday when I was watching a video about making a cross-stitch covered needle book :)
