A blog about my interests, which include fabric landscapes and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Today I am excited to announce two things!

First of all, Kathy Shaw (Shawkl) has just announced that her new book is now available  "Crazy Quilting - Volume I - Beyond The Basics" is a wonderful book (I know - because I was honoured to be Kathy's proofreader!!).  It is the first of what will be a series of books, based on the free online crazy quilting classes she has been offering for the past couple of years.  There is lots of new content in this book, so if you have taken her classes already you will definitely find the book to be a good addition to your library.

The second announcement concerns those wonderful stencils created by Sharon Boggon that I mentioned a few days ago.  They are now available!!  You can purchase yours by going HERE.   I use the first series of stencils quite often in my work and I was quick to order this set to add to my embroidery tools.

Today the quote is from Laurence Sterne...."Every time a man smiles, and much more when he laughs, it adds something to his fragment of life" 



  1. Thank you for the wonderful links Mary Anne! I have my copy of the book on pre-order and I am very tempted by the stencils too... I have the first set and I have already used them quite a bit! Christine x

  2. Thanks again for keeping us up with Current Events!!

  3. I just had to stop by and see what your announcements were, very useful, thank you.
    Have a great day!


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.
