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.

A little more progress & some announcements (thinly disguised as mumblings!)

I spent much of the weekend working on the final edit of Kathy Shaw's upcoming book "Crazy Quilting Volume 2 - Ribbon Embellishments" - she is taking pre-orders HERE - and I can highly recommend it!  It's another in her series of really great crazy quilt books and I'm happy to say that, because I'm her proofreader, I get to read them first!!  Lucky me!

Kathy has also just announced a brand new online (free) class she's offering that's all about traditional (sane) quilting - a departure from her normal classes.  This one will concentrate on the creation of a series of mug rugs (which, btw, would make great gifts!) and in so-doing you will learn a number of different quilting patterns and techniques.  Go HERE for further info and to register.  You'll have to hurry though because she only leaves registrations open for a couple of days.

I must say that the mosquitoes that can be found HERE are just my style!  Go have a look and see if you don't agree.

Now, on to what else I did over the weekend...



Two more in the postcard series  


Today the quote is from Anatole France...."Some succeed because they are destined to; most succeed because they are determined to"

  2. Oh my, Ann Wood's creations are something else aren't they. Yes, I can see Ann's mosquito fitting in somewhere at your place. How exciting to proofread a new crazy embellishing book. That does sound fun. Loving your new piece of art, Mary Anne.

  6. I just love your color schemes and stitching.

    Nope, didn't like those mosquitoes at all. Very unusual and pretty artsy, but still a mosquito!.

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.
