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.

Final piece, and yes, Karen, there IS white!

Here is the final piece for the purse...





And, here's the first piece of my next
white cloth...just for Karen...


The pink striped 'bit' is from a new tea towel 
that, I think, belonged to my grandmother.
The embroidered flowers mid-bottom
were done by my maternal grandmother.

  10. Oh I'm loving this already and it will be so special with something from you grandmother included too.
    Would you believe we are just about to purchase a slow cooker so now I know where to come for recipes!

    Thank you dear friend for all of your so kind comments about Andrea all along the way. Today we spread her ashes on our property near the creek. It was so special! The final step in saying "goodbye".
    Hugs,
