A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Tired of these yet?

Here's another of the squares I'll be using in my quilt. This one still needs quite a bit of work to finish it, but I like it because it's blue (one of my other favourite colours!).

Had a fun day today, despite the weather - which is horrible. Extremely windy and cold with snow 'showers' throughout the day. Brrrr. Even the house is cold tonight. Anyway, I got off-topic there. I had started to tell you that we had our monthly meeting of CQTeers here today and did our usual bring-n-brag session, ate chocolate, and Sue taught us how to make really cute snowflakes and flowers using paper punches and mulberry paper. Hope to have a picture to show you tomorrow.

My friend Doreen over at has been playing with used tea bags, which is going to be my next 'have-to-try' project. We rarely drink black tea anymore (prefer green tea) so I might just have to break down and *cook* some tea bags just to use for art! However, in the interest of being thrifty, I'll save the liquid and use it to dye some fabric.


  1. You need to take a plastic bag with you when you go to all the meetings and groups that you attend -then they will think you are weird as well as clever.

  2. Mary Ann,

    These squares are wonderful. I love the stitching.

Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
