Rudolph? You got company!!

As far as red noses go, I think Rudolph still has me beat, but that's not to say I'm not trying to run a close second!  Be gone, allergies - get thee behind me so I can go outside and not be kept inside like a hothouse plant!

Needless to say there's nothing creative happening around Chez Magpie, so instead I'll send you over to have a visit with Karen Ruane and read all about her latest online class that's just gone on offer.  If you've ever contemplated joining in on the fun, now is the time and I can tell you, from experience, that her classes are great fun.  Not only will you get to watch Karen create her amazing embroideries but you will also get to play along (and get to know) some really nice people.  Go on, join in the fun (you know you want to!!).  Go HERE

Today I am joining in with the Monday Stitchery Linkie Party being organized by SuperMomNoCape  HERE

Today the quote is from Florida Scott-Maxwell...."I want to tell people approaching and perhaps fearing age that it is a time of discovery.  If they say "Of What?" I can only answer "We must find out for ourselves, otherwise it won't be discovery"


  1. Thanks so much for linking up to my Stitchery Link Party and for linking back to help get the word out so that others can join in the fun. Aloha hugs!

  2. Hello Mary Anne! I do hope you feel better soon! Loved the hussif post that you linked up! It is beautiful! :) x

  3. Hi MA sorry to hear you are feeling under the weather. I can empathize because I was down with a crazy long lived bug for about a month. I hope your allergens clear out quickly so you can go outside!

  4. Allergies are the pits aren't they? Do you use nasal wash? My husband and I find they help.Less sinusitis.Where we live bad for allergies too.
    Love that saying.My mother is one of the most fearful persons I have ever met.I am glad I'm learning not to be like her any more.I have /am learning to embrace age etc.
    Thganks for kind comment on my blog.

  5. Oh I do hope your shiny red nose becomes a li'l less glowing very soon! Hope you are feeling better very soon.

  6. just a thought you might consider...several years ago i gave up eating dairy. i have since had little problem with allergies and have been able to stop my allergy shots which i took for more than 30 years having to stop and start again several times. it is said, that dairy causes mucous which encourages the allergies. i do miss it but am much happier physically.
    and you are right about Karen's classes. they are absolutely wonderful.

  7. oh nose...:( boo....thanks for the link. Your cheque is in the post!!

  8. i spy a new 'spring' header photo.....charming

  9. I'm with you about the allergies.....hope the allergens clear soon. I signed up with KR and I'm excited about it already! Hugs


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
