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.

It seems there's more seams

I finally got back to stitching on my courtship blocks and completed two more seams to show you...


This one is cross stitches (black and red; straight stitches (yellow); and lazy daisies (green).  





Cross & Straight stitches (black and green); rice and seed beads.






Mumblings...

- If you have been considering purchasing any of the publications from Pam Kellogg (of Kitty and Me Designs), including the 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine, now's your chance to pick them up at 15% off  through her Etsy shop.  Go HERE for the details!

- Check out the post HERE to make a sweet little cardinal!

- For some amazing baby eye candy, have a look at THIS.  No pattern but wow!!

- HERE's a cute little white rabbit pattern just in time for Easter making. And a cute LAMB too (you'll have to scroll down for the pattern).  Oh, and HERE's another cute lamb!

- If you have a little girl in your life, perhaps she'd like a new Easter dress?  Go HERE for that one.

- Awhile ago I posted a link to a pattern for making Twiddle Muffs for Alzheimer's and Dementia patients and this morning I came across an idea to make Twiddle Mats (no pattern but easy enough to create) from THIS pin.  If you scroll down there are lots of further ideas for making the muffs.

Today your quote is from Rumi...."Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world.  Today I am wise, so I am changing myself"

Two more lovely seams Mary Anne. I especially like the first, it has such a lovely delicate, vintage feel to it! Christine x

Lovely seams you have stitched. Such adorable crochet cuties. Days are just not long enough to do everything. Love the quote. Rain here again today.

More nice stitching and patterns. Love the beading in the second one. That is an amazing baby sweater & cap.

Love the first seam with the cross stitches. Pretty. But the beading on the second one is cool too. Nope, decided it's the first one I like best.
