First, thank you for all the input and suggestions re my question about tablets. They were much appreciated! With the help of #2 Son, there is a 'Samsung Galaxy Tab 4' on the way...there's also something called a 'wireless router' that arrived at my door this afternoon. I suppose that now means that there will be another great learning curve happening at Chez Magpie! Scary thought.
There has been a bit more progress on my latest hussif project....
The long seam to the left of the scissors has been completed - there might be something happen yet to break up that long expanse, but will wait & see how it looks overall when the rest is done. I also added a second sewing machine (cross stitch on waste canvas).
I see that Jennifer Clouston has a new crazy quilting book out (and of course you know it's on my wish list!!). If you'd like to know more, there's a review HERE.
There's a cute free pattern for crocheted hearts HERE (hey, they're non-fattening and SO much better for you than Valentine's chocolate....yeah, and if you think I believe that one, you're sadly mistaken!!).
Kathy Shaw has just opened registrations for her free ICQC-103 (Embroidery Motifs) online course and you can read more about that HERE.
If you happen to have one of those brass lighting fixtures floating about (or you stumble across one in a thrift store) there are some really great ideas HERE for re-purposing them. I'd like to do a couple of these projects but will have to keep my eye out for lamps.
Finally, here's your quote for today, from Richard Flournov & Lewis Foster...."There are two kinds of people: those who don't do what they want to do, so they write down in a diary about what they haven't done, and those who haven't time to write about it because they're out doing it"
