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.

and some more....






Another waste canvas cross stitch.



Cross stitch flower, crocheted trim, blackwork flower (also done on waste canvas), and a seam treatment using ric rac.



Cross stitch leaves, ribbon roses, bullion loops and french knots to create a seam treatment.






Today the quote is from Haim Ginott.... "If you want children to improve, let them overhear the nice things you say about them to others"
