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.

Sharing

There are several things I found interesting and thought I'd share them with you, because what I'm working on right now isn't showable until the recipients get them. In the meantime.....

1. My friend Arlee has written another of her monthly columns for MrXStitch and this time it's a very interesting article about Hippie Embroidery, which can be found here. I haven't thought about the fashion styles from the hippie days in ages so it was a nice trip down memory lane!

2. You have to see the embroidery pieces Karen of Contemporary Embroidery does! I know I've pointed you in her direction before, but she is worth visiting again (and again!!). Her work is exquisite and so different from anything I've seen.

3. I've pointed you here before too, but I wanted to mention again about the Decidedly Different Doll group on yahoo. If you're interested in doll making of any sort, come and check us out! More information can also be found on our blog here.

Hi!
Thanks so very, very much for the nice comments on my blog about Blues Chapel. The experience of taking an exhibit across the country and installing it in such a gorgeous, professional setting was absolutely a magical "high" that I'm still reeling in joy over!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. When I was in high school we invited our Canadian cousins for the "big feast". You can imagine our surprise when they showed up a month early! Personally, I think your date is much, much better!
