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 beginning

You can never say that I'm not willing to try new things - or at least new applications for things I already do.  I love crazy quilting (imagine that!!) and I love old barns....so.....why not combine the two?  Not at all sure if the concept will work, but here you can see the beginning....


Is it going to turn out - or is it the beginning of the end??

- THIS falls under the category of 'wow' - you might have to hit the translate button to read the text though.  And while we're on the subject, have a look at THIS art installation!!!  We mustn't leave out the coffee drinkers who might like to see THIS.  

- For those who like miniatures, how about THIS?

- There's an interesting article/tutorial HERE about ways to carry yarn up the side of your knitting.

- Mary Corbet has a sweet little stem stitch rose tutorial HERE.

This promises to be an interesting journey with you MA.

Thanks for the links too. The art in the first is totally amazing and must have taken ages to imagine, construct and finish the work.
I like the tiny Stem stitch rose.

I was pretty darned interested when you last mentioned barns and CQ. I'm still interested and I bet if anyone can do this, it's you.

Nice start. I have been working on some finishes and will soon post about them.

You are a genius so I'm sure it will be another stunning piece! I actually bought some embroidery floss over the weekend haha! You and your links have really got me to want to stitch something again but NOW I don't know what to stitch! I need to go back and look at some of the links I bookmarked . . .

This barn quilt that will have Crazy Quilting will be so very unique and stunning. I LOVE the tea bag art! Why do I throw my tea bags in the trash??? Oh yes I remember...they do no have amazing art on them! Maybe in another lifetime...

Becki said...

Oh boy! I'm so excited to see another project from the beginning (or near beginning). Can't wait to see what you create, Mary Anne.
