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.

Just a little change of pace....

Before I get started on my next crazy quilt project(s) I thought I might make a few 'expected grandbaby things', so here's a pile of receiving blankets, just waiting for a nice wash to be ready for September...


You might guess from seeing these that
the new wee one will be a boy.  
And you would be right!

Just a little announcement - Kathy Shaw has just opened registrations for her ICQC-101 (Design Plants & Block Piecing) online FREE crazy quilting class.  Go HERE for further information (better hurry though, she's only taking registrations until midnight April 28th!).  

Another of the pieces found in my mother's collection (author unknown)....

 Give me one friend, just one, who meets
The needs of all my varying moods;
Be we in noisy city streets
Or in dear Nature's solitudes.

One who can let the world go by,
And suffer not a minutes pang
Who'd dare to shock propriety
With me and never care a hang.

One who can share my grief or mirth,
And know my days to praise or curse
And rate me just for what I'm worth
And find me still - Oh, not so worse!

Give me one friend, for peace or war,
And I shall hold myself well blest,
And richly compensated for
The cussedness of all the rest.

Looking forward to seeing what is made for the GS with those fabrics. Happy playing.

Love the Friend verse and am fortunate to have married my friend.

Very sweet receiving blankets for a new little grandson. To be a Grandma is such a blessing!

Love these! Our 'retired teacher' craft group made a bunch of these for our local crisis nursery. They were fast and fun and we hope will be well used. Congrats on your new little fellow! Z
