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.

Additional progress (albeit small!!)


Today I didn't manage to accomplish too much on the hussif, but here it is.  The bird to the left of Pooh's tummy was  a hand-painted (on silk I think) brooch.  I removed the pin part and then held it down with a little bit of glue so that I could bead around it to hold it in place more securely.

You might want to have a look at the quilts in the Canadian Quilter's Association National Juried Show - there are lots of spectacular quilts and they are well worth having a look HERE.    Thank you to Judy for telling me about it.

Today the quote is from Erich Fromm...."Not he who has much is rich, but he who gives much"

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.
