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.

A new project


Yesterday I scrounged around in my stash and came up with some fabrics to start creating a new crazy quilt project.  At least I think it will be a project - might turn out to be a dog's breakfast (of the regurgitated sort...lol).  My stash rather lacks in oranges and yellows so it was a challenge.


Once again I'm going off into uncharted territory.  Like I said,  dogs and breakfasts is a definite possibility!  Stay tuned.


- THESE would be nice for Valentine's Day, but I think they would work year 'round in so many different ways.

- There's a nice tutorial HERE (part 1) and HERE (part 2) for a sweet little needlebook.  Hexxie lovers take note!  HERE is tutorial for another one (perhaps you could combine the nicest elements of the two?)

- For the cross stitchers .... there's a cute cupid pattern HERE  that would be nice for Valentine's and how about a floral bunny pattern for Easter found HERE.  

Today your quote is from Abraham Maslow..."In any given moment we have two options:  To step forward into growth or step back into safety"

You know, all your "unchartered territory" pretties always seem to evolve into the most beautiful works of art. =)

Well, I'll be interested to see what you do with these colors that are out of your comfort zone. I am confident that you'll whip them into something wonderful.
xx, Carol

At the moment, it also looks like it could be turkey feathers. ;^) I'm excited to be getting in on this at the ground floor and will look forward to watching your creation grow!

Turkey feathers - what a great idea! Afraid I'm going to have to disappoint you though. (replying to your comment here because I can't respond to you directly).

Ooooh, I can't wait to see what you create! I agree with Carol, you'll whip them into something wonderful :)

Happy hugs to you!

Hmmmm, I'm intrigued - I was sure it was something to do with turkeys too because of the colours. I will wait for breakfast to take shape!

I immediately thought - wow, this lady is getting a head start on Thanksgiving! Definitely has the look of a turkey/fall. I know you'll create something mind-blowing! I love those crocheted hearts - may give those a try. You are responsible for making me really want to cross stitch something again which I haven't done in YEARS although I'm not sure I'd be able to do the 18 and 24 count stitching at my age!!

I love your orange start!
