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.

More, more, more

WHITE, that is!



Another piece of embroidery done by my grandmother,
an initial from a hankie,
a piece of a tea towel.

This one has a piece of tone-on-tone quilters cotton,
another hankie,
some linen,
a pre-embroidered piece from a thrifted blouse.

A piece of a man's handkerchief,
a ladies hankie with crocheted edging,
a piece of dupioni silk.
oh yeah, and it snowed today.
