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.

Succumbed....

...to another book for my collection. We won't mention that I've ordered yet another one too. I just picked this one up today and haven't had a chance for a real good read yet, but it looks quite good. It's not a 'how-to' book as such, but focuses more on the history of crazy quilting. There are tons of beautiful photos of antique CQs, a section of embroidery motifs, and also some techniques.

I'm such a crazy quilt book-junkie and simply cannot resist anything new that comes out (and would LOVE to get my hands on the out-of-print 'Crazy Quilts' by Penny McMorris). I really would hate to tell you just how many books I own on the subject, but there is always room for more. I read them too!!

AND - drum roll - my friend Irene has a brand spanky new blog. Please give her a visit and encourage her on her road to blogdom. http://dogonart.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for your kind comment on my blog about the garden embroidery...stitching those flowers helps drive away the "grays"..

    In case you don't know it, Cindy Brick has a very personable blog, more about her life than her work.

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.
