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.

Committed!

And yes, I already know what thoughts are going through your mind!  Some would say it would serve me right...ahem.  Anyhoo.....

The person who purchased the barn (from my previous post) has commissioned me to recreate their house in fabric!  My first commission since I embarked on this landscape caper.  They live in an amazing old farmhouse that is a perfect place to visit (actually our #2 son and daughter-in-love were married there).  I really hope I can manage to do this house justice!



- There's a free online quilt magazine available HERE.  You can upgrade to the paid version (which includes more content) if you would like.  If you sign up the issues will be delivered to your inbox automatically.  I subscribe to the free version and there's lots of content.  AND, I just found out that they're celebrating their birthday and  if you buy a subscription (normally $10/year) before midnight on Sunday Apr. 15 and use Coupon Code   FB01C  you can get it for half price!

- I simply cannot even begin to imagine knitting THIS small!!!

- THIS is a rather cute wee pincushion.

- If you like hats and would like something pretty to wear this summer, how about THIS one from a free pattern?
