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 sights - some questionable, some incredible!

Today I finally got back to working in my embroiderer's ledger.  Yay!  I was beginning to feel extreme withdrawal symptoms.

Here you go...


Please note that Karen, our wonderful teacher for the class (and embroiderer extrodanaire!)
 has changed her site addy
to THIS

Also, I would like to point you 
to see some absolutely fabulous
eye candy
posted by Susan of Plays With Needles.
(Thanks Linecat!)

AND,
finally...
this is what I live with!

You are too funny. Love the show-stopper pieces! Beautiful! Does DH read your blog? I'm just asking... Funny. He looks like a very nice person (that just doesn't want to cook). I'm going to check out your recommended site now. Later.

I checked out your links, great stuff as usual. I must have been away from English accents for a very long while, since I could only pick out a word here and there in Karen's video, but it was nice to watch along anyway.

And the fashion show link was very interesting -- did you see Michelle Obama's Olympic reception outfit? all silver embroidery on the top. Right bang in style.

Is he ready to attack or cook? He looks like a gentle fellow and I know how he cooks for you so that is probably it.

I also followed the links you so kindly provided but am saving the Somerset one for when I have an hour or two to spare.

You are doing grat on your ledger. I think mine is a lost cause. I am ready to move on. I have had Karen visiting for 18 weeks and am really going to miss her. wonderful teacher.

Hugs
